Sterling Comment On Regulatory Notice 21-19
The short selling as a business action to "bet" against what is considered a failing business is understandable. It's when a company uses various tricks in the market to create more shorts than should actually exist, IE naked short selling. Various people that are not apart of the regulatory system have proven such naked shorts exist and yet the system set in place does nothing to stop it. The bigger market makers have access to huge amounts of data that retail user such as myself will never have and making that data accessible to retail would be a good step towards making a more fair market. On top of that, ensuring that the regulatory organizations are not run by the very people they are supposed to regulate.
