James Bryan Needham Comment On Regulatory Notice 21-19
I would like to see something done about the dark pool trading and the lack of reporting that comes from trading outside of the markets. Manipulation by routing buy orders into darkpool trading and leaving sells in the market to manipulate the price while also using the dark pools to ladder attack with synthetic shares which don't get reported needs to end. Hiding short sells in options is another item that needs attention. The global attention from millions of people in the U.S. markets is enormous and is turning it into a laughing stock. Why would anyone want to invest in a market that allows blatant fraud? These people ruined millions of lives in 2008 and got off unpunished and here they are doing it again. This is anything but a free and fair market.
