  1. banning short selling on all stocks until the end of october? anyone confirm?
  2. I guess I heard it wrong from squawk.........they mentioned something along the line, but didn't hear the whole thing....
  3. You got it off a Bloomberg headline.

    Italy has banned ALL shortselling. We have been doing this on a Worldwide basis, so it isn't far fetched, esp after that drubbing yesterday. The US doesn't want to bail out C.

    Int he NYPost today, an article that UberCriminal Cox is facing revolt from his commissioners. That is not helping.

    So far, nothing happened. But if I was a govie type, and these guys were killing me like this, I'd pop that news about 10 eastern, just for the "screw you" effect.

    Makes it interesting, doesn't it? Like being on a roller coaster, looking down and seeing a loose bolt.
