Karl Allan Comment On Regulatory Notice 21-19
I applaud FINRA’s proposed rule changes and support any rule that makes short interest visible to all investors. Free and fast information leads to better price discovery for all. Buried and outdated short interest reports serve only those who have short positions they wish to remain hidden and those who abuse FTD and naked shorting loopholes to manipulate prices. These actions hurt all investors and the only way to stop them is to make them visible.
