The practice of naked short selling has destroyed confidence in the U.S. economy and made investing turn into a casino. Until this is resolved, more companies will be destroyed due to day traders concerted attacks on any sign of weakness.

Bring real investors back. Create restrictions on short selling, and ELIMINATE naked short selling as soon as possible. How could it have taken this long to address this? This is completely irresponsible. It may already be too late.
