Bailey Ponder Comment On Regulatory Notice 21-19

Bailey Ponder

Hello FINRA I'm a simple and uneducated ape, I'm fairly new to the market. I have seen verified data that shows companies (such as Melvin Capital and Citadel) funding media outlets to reinforce their short positions on a nearly perfect cyclical basis, I have seen people on social media paid for directly by such companies, and even worse I have companies ravage through money that wasn't their to increase failing positions. I know for a fact there are players who abuse their right to trade on NYSE as well as alternative exchanges and in doing so are knowingly affecting the calculated short interest. Thanks for listening to me ramble.
