i wonder about the following: aren't (also) the futures a considerable factor, that contribute to the current downtrends? if so - i wonder, that there is no uptick rule for shorting futures. what do you guys think about this? as far as i know - the uptick rule for stocks was implemented to make it harder riding down a single stock. but futures ride down the whole markets - don't they? maybe i already sound a bit like sec - but all in all i wouldn't be surprised if things get restricted even more. or did i forget anything important - please tell me.
