The unofficial Wall Street Bets Shop website defines the 💎🤲 emoji combination as “Having ‘Diamond Hands’ is when a trader is prepared to hold on to their stocks or securities for a long time. They believe in the future success of their trade so much that they will hold onto them until profit is obtained. This is why they are termed as having ‘Diamond Hands’.”
