All this talk about the uptick rule and so called Bear raids on a stock like BSC got me thinking and well, am I the only one who thinks so called bear raids to pound a stock into the ground is a bunch of horse shit. Cramer keeps talking about how these hedge fund desks call each other up and collude to short a certain stock. I swear this guy is clinically insane and delusional. I think his divorce really did him in mentally. No way can that be true, I can't see how that would even be possible. First of all you would have to have cooperation on a grand scale. Reason is no single desk is going to put all there capital to short something some guy on some desk told them to. What are they going to do have a massive conference call? lol. Then you would have the problem of everybody trying to cover quicker than the next guy. That alone makes this collusion idea not possible. Rumors dont work like they did back in the 20's and 30's. Information was very slow to distribute. Not true anymore. Bear raids are just an old time phenomena I believe. I do think this happened quite a bit in the early days of trading, BUT in this day of digital information distribution at lightning speed, no way. Cant happen. This aint the 30's.
