Markets for Feb 26: $AION +8.33%, $CYBN -19.19%, $FTRP -13.09%

For the most part, this week was a red sea for the psychedelics industry. Most companies were down within the teens, while Ehave (EHVVF) was a noticeable outlier at -47.04%. It’s not completely unexpected to see profit-taking with the continuous weeks of green and unprecedented volatility we’ve had recently.

Meanwhile, in the lands of stonks, the SEC has recently suspended trading in 15 companies due to market volatility and social media attempts to artificially inflate the share prices. While not included in the list of suspended companies, it seems the GME fiasco, again not completely unexpected, could foster regulations or repercussions surrounding the discussion of stocks on social media. I’m already excited for The Big Short 2.

Here’s a summary of this week’s news:
