Well, the DOW was at 13200 or close in late April, so here we are almost 6 months later with a loss of about 500 points away from losing 40%. I am still not sure why Cox won't instill the uptick rule again. How much of this is due to the fact that shorts jump in and drive it down with selling. It is something to be said that these big down days have not occurred until the uptick rule was removed. I wonder how much he got paid to "observe" the rule in the bull market.
