Will Erdmann Comment On Regulatory Notice 21-19
Individual retail investors and the SEC need daily, hourly, real time, transparency into synthetic short interest, naked shorts, high-frequency, dark pool trading. The dark pool trading and blatant market manipulation creates an unfair advantage to hedge funds and market makers. Without this, the federal government is giving an unfair advantage to Wall Street, and disadvantaging Main Street! Penalties for their use of synthetic shares should include jail time, and monetary fines have done nothing to curb this predatory behavior.
