Naked short selling should be illegal.

Naked short selling hurts the growing amount of people who believe in companies that can do good for the economy and the world.

It hurts people who are trying to make money for their retirement.

I believe there are many more shares being traded with LDK than are actually there.

Please stop Naked short selling.
