Anonymous Comment On Regulatory Notice 21-19
Short Sale Reporting must include all open short positions, such that FINRA and the public can have an accurate and complete understanding of how many shares have been sold short for a given security. Without this transparency, FINRA and SEC rules and laws will continue to be broken, without accountability and faith in the US markets, as a whole, will continue to be eroded. I submit that FINRA and its members have the duty and have been entrusted to protect the market's integrity and its reputation, and all market participants. Added transparency into Short Interest Position reporting and Short Sale reporting is a necessary and critical part of fulfilling that duty.
