Anonymous-WD Comment On Regulatory Notice 21-19


Make short selling more transparent (e.g daily data). Participants have to file in the long positions, but not the shorts, why? Disallow "data manipulation" by fake covering with worthless deep OTM options. Remove loopholes based on T+2 settlement. Why even T+2? Make it T+0 already. Why allow shorting of stocks on the security threshold list by short excempt? It seems not appropriate to give a broker that kind of decision. Short selling right now is biased to spexific market participants, giving them huge advantages over retail. This is not a fair market.
