The short selling rule must be put back as it was since the 1930's. Allowing short sellers to overpower the market is a bad idea and makes long term investing too dangerous. Without the full strength uptick rule there is dishonest short selling that will continue to wreck the portfolios of long term investors. Removing the uptick rule was a mistake. Put it back.
