If you are tired of market manipulation, I suggest you write to all your representatives and urge them to support market reform for ALL securities, instituting a pre-borrow, with share set aside, for any short sale -- thus eliminating the naked short sale. Urge them to support the reinstatement of the uptick rule with a 10point requirement. Urge them to withdraw the illegal exceptions they provide to market makers. The SEC has the rules in place, but they do not impose any penalties for breaking hte rules.
Congress is bought and paid for by the hedge fund industry. The money above the table is just a fraction of what goes under the table. I droped my jaw when Cox issued the no naked shorting rule on the special financial companies. I immediately thought it was always illegal to naked short stocks. So now they will enforce the law on certain stocks? Will Cox enforce the law on all stocks? I doubt it because he never seemed eager to regulate hedge funds. The financials prohibition was imposed upon him probably by Bush because it was wrecking the financial system.
