Subject: Market Maker reporting short positions in OTC
To The Sec:
I'd like to offer my full support to the initiative
of having Market Makers involved in the OTC:BB arena report the short
positions they maintain in the stocks they trade. I applaud the SEC
for taking this action, and would encourage even more regulation of Market
Maker conduct in the OTC:BB. Too many people and companies have
been hurt by manipulation of OTC stocks by market makers. There is no reason
the OTC:BB can't be just like a Nasdaq for micro-cap and development stage
companies. A well lit, clean and transparent
forum for the trading of stocks.
