Brandon Bryant Comment On Regulatory Notice 21-19

Brandon Bryant

Thank you for allowing the opportunity to post feedback and make recommendations to make the system fair for all traders. I feel that short interest should be reported intraday. If a stock price can be updated within milliseconds then this should be possible too. I also feel that large institutions that have over 100,000 of any stock should have to report their short positions pre and post market to a site that can be viewed by the public and there should be considerable fines if they continuously fail to under or not report. Lastly there should be a limit to shorting, for example an institution shouldn’t just be able to borrow shares and infinitely short the same stock every day, over and over. Shorting should be limited to two trading days per week by large institutions and hedge funds..
