It is my certain opinion that the short sell ban will be extended well beyond Oct. 2. Our economy cannot afford massive negatively and massive short selling.
I doubt an extension will occur, at least not of significant length. However, don't be surprised by some new rule or rules that constricts agressive shorting. Some version of an uptick rule, or increased margin requirements, etc.
or maybe (and I know this is a radical thought) some process that insures the shares they are shorting actually exist.
