My IRA is most of my retired income and as an IRA has limited maneuverability. Why should someone be allowed to legally, or maybe illegally, steal my income by their knowledge of the shorting game. Justice demands this practice needs to be stopped. It's hard enough for a retired person of declining mental capacity to fight inflation. To have to match wits with greedy short manipulators is patently unfair.
