Absolutely all short positions should require full and immediate disclosure. Short interests and fails to deliver are undermining investor confidence. Hedge funds and large banks are destroying the markets from the inside out. Private individuals are being exposed to a market that has become little more than a Las Vegas shell game with odds tilted toward hedge funds, corrupt banking industry insiders, and crooked brokerage firms. More industry insiders need to be prosecuted. CEO's that make millions while running companies into the ground need to be held accountable to investors. When will our government step up and save the American dream from the corrupt and greedy. The conflicts of interest that exist in todays markets are criminal.
