Gary Lacy Comment On Regulatory Notice 21-19

Gary Lacy

The technology exists for shorts to be tracked and displayed to the retail market in real time. There should be five designations on the real time level two transactions: by the ask sell the bid, sell short, buy to cover, buy or sell last price. Algorithms should be disallowed from opening or closing short positions so all must intentionally participate in the short sale. This will allow for more insight into market collusion/manipulation and provide personal accountability. Thank you for your consideration. Gary
