Anonymous Comment On Regulatory Notice 21-19
SSR is a solid rule especially for organic trading between bulls and bears. More often than not, when the SSR is triggered, it’s caused by a malicious entity aggressively shorting the stock. Obviously the annoying thing is that SSR doesn’t stop the shorting, it almost doesn’t affect its momentum. Big trading firms will use an aggressive short ladder attack to bypass SSR… Nothing is necessarily wrong with the ruling itself, it’s the malicious / illegal activity around SSR that makes it useless..
