Steven Comment On Regulatory Notice 21-19
All short positions should be reported including synthetics (why does that even exist). Every share should have a unique identifier that can’t be lent out multiple times (like we used to have with physical paper). Maybe we could have a free capitalist economy if competition was allowed and the best companies perform the best. A company shouldn’t be shorted and driven to bankruptcy because someone has enough money to destroy it. Reporting all short positions would discourage this behavior.
