Redditors

Users of Reddit’s infamous /r/wallstreetbets have at least five specific ways of calling themselves. Most of them serve as self-depreciating jokes with the underlying theme of society’s outcasts finding comradery in their stupidity and reveling in the madness of the markets. Apes: users who are committed to investments in heavily-shorted stocks. The name “Apes” and the allusion to the movie “War for the Planet of the Apes” is the original source of the “Ape movement” and the expression “Apes together strong”.Degenerates: another common way investors on /r/wallstreetbets use to refer to themselves. As others terms it is a self-depreciating name which follows the subreddit’s theme of users considering themselves as outcasts. Smooth brain: someone with a smooth brain equals someone who basically has never used his brain (as opposed to people who have “wrinkled brains”). A post was made claiming that “intelligence is determined by how many folds you have in your brain” which then originated a series of memes about smooth brains VS wrinkled brains.Retard: A term which most users refer themselves to and follows the subreddit’s theme of treating the market as a casino and associating it with seemingly dumb gambling.Autists (or autistic trader): rising above from all the above mentioned types of users, /r/wallstreetbets’ investors which are regarded as “autists” are considered to have some basic knowledge of trading. The expression is a reference to the movie “Rain Man” where the main character, which is a high functioning, highly analytical autist, is able to do advanced math and identify patterns where no one else can. Their unique input is considered highly valuable by other members of the online community. The term can also serve as a joke or even an insult when directed at another user.
