I would like to see some investigation performed on behalf of the chinese solar company LDK Solar "LDK" traded on the NYSE. There is a huge naked short position in regards to the very small available retail float and they have been on the SHO reg list for more than 160 days. There would appear to be manipulation of this stock by hedge funds and naked shorters. The rules for naked shorting need to be enforced and violators of these rules need to be punished. Please look into this matter as many honest average investors are being manipulated and their hard earned money is being taken from them.
