Just put back the uptic rule. We do not need anything else. This is supposed to be investing not a casino. All this trading, picking up pennies on millions of shares is not investing. You keep listening to all these vested interest traders who exist on volitility and have the attention span of 10 seconds. WE don't need them in the first place. Second all the exchanges care about is volume. Again another specialist interest. Please stop suggesting that short sales had nothing to do with the bank crisis and the demise of Bear and Lehman. That defies common sense and leads to the conclusion the SEC continues to have no interest in the investing public. You should be ivestigating and prosecuting these people not asking for comment from them.
