Daniel Scott Edvalson Comment On Regulatory Notice 21-19
Short interest reporting should be instantaneous. Not sure why the reporting on SI and other short positions data is so delayed and unreliable but for the market to be fair, both sides of positions need to see all data equally for manipulation to be in check. If changes to short data being made available publicly and in reasonable times then I fear the market will never be fair and retail investors will likely not put money into the system. Please see that all short position data, not only SI data, is made available instantaneously the same way long position data is.
