However, several Reddit users have warned that major investors targeted by their move may actually benefit from the rise in silver prices.

For example, Citadel – a hedge fund betting against GameStop that was hammered when stocks rose last week – has large volumes of metal and could profit from it. One Reddit user urged day traders not to stack the merchandise, saying, “It is imperative not to rush it.”

JPMorgan is believed to have short positions in silver, but also stockpiled masses of metal last year.
