The SEC has proposed new restrictive short sale rules. They're even more restrictive than a simple tick test that we had in the past. Plus, there's no talk of exemptions for ETF's. PLEASE take a look at the rule & submit a comment at the following URL. If implemented, it will really effect trading. Your comments really do matter. The anti-shorting crowd is already commenting in full force. We need to give our input as well. http://www.sec.gov/news/press/2009/2009-185.htm Please pass the url of this message to your trading friends & associates. We had major influence when the transaction tax issue came up earlier this year. We can have the same influence here as well. Thank You.
