Once again the short sellers are destroying capital that will be bumping up unemployment to 10%, and they can now operate without the particapation of accual buyers. Its incredible to think that the practice of short selling that was originally introduced to the markets as a BAN, has now taken over and left investors on the sidelines. the original uptick rule was the perfect solution and YOU had to remove it with devestating results. Its a no brainer that the MASS majority of the comments is for the uptick rule to be reinstated so why are you stalling?? we are on the verge of another meltdown or should i say bear raid because thats all it is these days.
