Please outlaw naked shorting. It is destroying our economy and undermining our faith in the free marketplace.
How is it right that certain special people have an unfair advantage to trade in the market.
It is your job to make the market fair and equal and anyone trying to invest today has the deck heavily stacked against them.
You have outlawed naked shorting for certain financials lets make it illegal for all stocks.
Please reinstate the uptick rule and remove naked shorting.
