A day after soaring seemingly because of board member Ryan Cohen’s photo of a McDonald’s Ice Cream Cone, GameStop‘s stock saw a near 104 percent increase.

Despite sitting around $91.71 USD for most of the day, during the final hour of trading a spike force the New York Stock Exchange to halt trading price due to volatility. Incredibly reaching a high of $177 USD, more than 50 million GameStop shares were traded in mere minutes. The latest rally is believed to be a concerted effort from Redditors on the r/WallStreetBets subreddit.
