Ryan Comment On Regulatory Notice 21-19
Reporting partial short interests does nothing but mask the trickery of hedgies. A good rule change for FINRA would be to report from ALL exchanges both lit and unlit. Get rid of T + 2. Provide exact real time interest charges. Hopefully the SEC would ban naked short covering with options or ban naked shorts entirely. Basically level the playing field between Wall Street and retailers. If we can’t do it or have the available info then no one should.
