Before the economy collapses stop naked shorting on ALL stocks (not just the financials which helped cause the problem in the first place) and reintroduce the uptick rule so that shorts can't manipulate markets as easily.

Stop ignoring FTD's and get to work on this or we will all suffer. Thank you.
