Only reason for removal of uptick rule was to make shorts money. It took one day of deep deliberation by SEC to unamiously vote yes to remove uptick rule with consultation with madoff and his racket brokers hedge funds. now Cramer and investors are begging the crooked SEC to reinstate the uptick rule which is 1 year too late. the damage has been done to the markets. liquidity has been sucked dry. there is limited capital or cash in the markets. now they don't allow shorting at the bottom , shorts don't short at the bottom. ban on shorting is useless now.
