Musk talked with Robinhood’s CEO about last week’s “meme stock margin”
Musk jokingly asked the CEO Vlad Tenev if has is being held hostage or if he has a gun to his head. During the Clubhouse chat, Tenev reassured eager listeners that there was nothing “fishy” going on with the trading app after the recent controversy surrounding the company.
Tenev clarified that the trading company is part of the financial system and that trading US securities is a heavily regulated process. Tenev says that the company’s external clearinghouse partner demanded it posts $3 billion in collateral to back the stock margin trades last week. He also dismissed rumors that Citadel or any other outside sources put any pressure on Robinhood to stop trading stocks.
