Dionte Pounds Comment On Regulatory Notice 21-19
Hello, I am commenting in favor of the following regulation adjustments: - Short positions need to be reported daily by funds and market makers, and public notice needs to be reported daily on a public website for that purpose, for all holdings and companies in the market. - Audits need to happen by regulatory agencies to ensure shorts and FTDs are not being hidden in options. - Punishments need to be severe enough to ensure it doesn't continue, and in a timely manner. - Large hedgefunds and Market Makers are run by the same company. They need to be broken up. - High frequency low volume trades done in dark pools are being used to influence stock pricing. This market manipulation needs to be clamped down on, enforced, and punished with heavy fines. I am thankful you are asking for input, it shows that hopefully something may finally be done in the market to combat the practice of naked shorting.
