Stephan Haefliger Comment On Regulatory Notice 21-19
Short interest should not be self reported. Needs to be transparent and reported daily. FTD's should cause HEAVY fines. I mean, HEAVY. Maybe 50% of annual profit of a company. Naked shorts need to be investigated, openly disclosed to the public and result in heavy monetary penalties, as well as temporary ban from trading a particular security (maybe 30 or 90 days ban). High frequency trading should be abolished. Publicly traded companies are forced to comply with so much transparency while market makers are getting away with collusion, manipulation and flat out financial treason. Use your power and resources to detect price manipulation such as with AMC, every Friday (look up the battle of $8.01) and STOP IT.
