  3. Why don't they simply shut down the exchange if they want us to stop trading.

    Can you imagine...

    No short sales of any kind in any stock. And when you buy a stock, you must keep it for at least 30 days before you can sell it.

    At that point, I would be out of business as a trader! :eek:

    No telling how far the new regulations will eventually go.

    WTF. A discredited rating company is essential to prevent the world collapsing?
