Ron Velotta Comment On Regulatory Notice 21-19

Ron Velotta

Do you REALLY think the solution is to allow the members that have been engaged in blatant market manipulation against retail investors to make the judgement call on whether a retail investor is being taken advantage of and disable their ability to buy or sell a stock?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Do you even begin to understand how negatively this will impact retail investors when their positions are counter to the very same market makers that get to decide if a retail investor should be prevented from buying/selling stocks? Of course you do. You're corrupt. Is something wrong with your heads? From the document: ...a member firm would be permitted, but not required, to place a temporary hold on a transaction when there is a reasonable belief that the customer is being financially exploited.
