Recession or not?, it doesn't matter, with no uptick rule, market plunges the same?

  1. With no uptick rule when shorting, the market plunges the same as a recession.
  2. what? that makes zero sense
  3. ah, I see you are long. ever heard of hedging?
  4. When there was the uptick shorting rule, it was harder to short.

    Now being easier to short, stocks plunge more, even if there's no recession.

    With no downtick rule when buying, the market explodes the same as a booming economy. Both statements are idiotic.
  6. I'm guessing english is not your first language? Because I think I know what you are trying to say but what you wrote is not structured well

  7. Hey guys, wake up. Everyone is forecasting a recession to happen (or has already happened as of December): GS, ML, LB, UBS, etc... I can't remember when this last happened that all majors did agree on economic state. Don't you think a recession (at least a mild one) is already priced in the market?
