    I have heard that it is not going to happen can someone let me know what is going. Can we also refrain from gratuitous assent bashing or personal attacks on other traders??

    assent was rumored to be coming out with a bullet like product that could be put on on an as needed basis as opposed to a conversion that is a long term proposition that chiefly works for traders who trade the same stocks on a daily basis. It was the bullet like product i am referring to.

    bullets could be done instantly and done on any borrowable stock and were good only for a day but didn't have to be only for a day.

    conversions are only on optionable stocks, can take an hr. to get done ,can last uo to 3 months and must show a measurable risk . otherwise they can be deemed as a violation in order to get around uptick rule.

  5. what does measurable risk mean?
    when u sell a call and buy a put there is always risk involved, no?

    it seems like other firms dont want to bother with it, because of messy accounting issues.

  6. The whole system is set up for SEC to take away any "unfair manipulation" by traders.

    You guys who depend on bullets/conversions/shorts, etc.. too much are fighting a losing battle.
