Juan Valdez Comment On Special Notice – 6/30/21
To whom it may concern, As a new retail investor, I want to see more transparency in our markets. I've learned that big financial institutions are abusing their privileges given to them; most notably their use of dark pools and naked short selling. An effective way to earn back the trust of retail investors is to put these often illegal practices on the forefront so we can find out what is being done to curb these types of behavior. FINRA and the SEC need to work together to teach retail investors about the risk they take on when these large financial institutions manipulate prices. Retail investors will never discover the true price of a security if these practices continue, thank you. Sincerely, Juan Valdez, Jr.
