ChatGPT is ruffling quite a few feathers in the financial world with its quirky responses to users. A handful of users are ‘jailbreaking’ the chatbot forcing it to answer questions that it knows are false. Users are cracking a prompt code called DAN that jailbreaks the chatbot making its response go unhinged and provide false information.

While the response is based on the screenshots, the information provided by DAN is dead wrong and misleading. Even BI admitted in the article that DAN’s reply should not be taken seriously.

No, the stock markets will not crash on Mar. 15, 2023, as responded by ChatGPT’s unhinged bot DAN.

DAN provides different answers to each user who ask the same question. Therefore, if 365 different users ask ‘when will the stock markets crash?’: It will mention all 365 days to different users.

The real version of ChatGPT does not provide financial predictions and remains off-topic. The main culprit for confusion, DAN provides deranged answers which should be taken as a joke only, and not be taken seriously.

In addition, do not believe all screenshots posted on the internet from ChatGPT to be true. The majority of them are false and misleading. Also, if you ask the AI bot a question, it is advised to keep it to yourself and not share the screenshots on social media to add further fuel to an already burning fire.

In conclusion, the stock markets will not crash on Mar. 15, 2023, and the screenshots on social media are inaccurate.
