Top executives from Robinhood, Reddit, Citadel, and Melvin Capital will testify before the U.S. House Financial Services Committee today, addressing last month’s GameStop mania. The Reddit trader who goes by “Roaring Kitty” will also attend.

“We think the congressional hearing will focus on understanding exactly what occurred during the week of service disruptions, making sure that all activity was appropriate and also determining how to avoid a similar event in the future,” analyst Devin Ryan said.

Shares of the heavily-shorted GameStop stock briefly soared to $483 apiece last month as retail investors organized a short squeeze. Shares eventually plummeted 90%. At one point, during the frenzy, the Robinhood app even restricted trading, which drew a great deal of criticism.

“What we experienced last month was extraordinary,” said the CEO of the app, Vlad Tenev. “And the trading limits we put in place on GameStop and other stocks were necessary to allow us to continue to meet the clearinghouse deposit requirements that we pay to support customer trading on our platform.”

What else should you expect from today’s GameStop hearing?
