  1. No i am not talking about naked short selling, but short selling in general.

    WTF! i never in my wildest dream thought it will come to this. Just today i was talking to my coworker that us will never ban short selling like the brits, it would be the end of the free market.

    WTF?!?!? :confused: :confused:

    anyway cnbc said it's temporary, lets see if it goes through
  2. its end of free market as we know it.

    What a bullshit thread. Why put a headline like that?
  5. Post a link or ban the thread starter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  6. so does that mean you can't short a short etf?
  7. it's not a bullshit thread you moron. SEC SAID THEY WILL BAN SHORT SELLING, the news broke on cnbc.
  8. "Breaking NewsSEC intends to temporarily ban short selling, but it's not clear if the commission has approved the move. Cox is briefing congressional leaders. Separately, the government is seeking congressional authority to buy distressed assets."

    it's on the breaking news headline on
  9. just21


    Good for 7 sp points so far.
