cramerstink...is anyone stopping you for shorting GE?
If not..,.why do you come on this board a cry every few minutes? Yes we know you are short on GE and I'm long, but do you see me telling you to buy the stock as many times you're saying to sell? In my opinion GE is a great company that's why I'm long. Then in your opinion you're saying GE sucks, so you are short!...OK, fine GE sucks are you happy now? Just shut the fuck up ..will you!
Banning short selling solves nothing. In fact, it will interfere with price discovery and it shows the extent of desperation on the government's part to apply a quick and popular fix that will not work. All it wouold do is slow things down until the present politicians leave office.
