Your gonna ban short selling when stock is down 20% ..Ban short selling to save our markets for 6 months..Whats the fallback on the economy if GM goes under and 263,000 people lose their job...Alot worse than hedge funds going under who are ruining our market...Ive been writing for 8 years on naked short selling and the SEC has done nothing...Settle the trades and stop short selling for 6 months save our country and save our jobs...
