William B Comment On Regulatory Notice 21-19
If the US market looks to be seen as a free market we need to have transparency. Dark pool trading has gone on unregulated to the point of becoming a place where institutional investors can go to hide their elicit trades; this needs to end. All authorized shares should be able to be accounted for at any given time during market hours. Fines and penalties for FTDs and naked shorting of stocks should be implemented immediately as well as be heightened to the point they pass any realized gains.
