GameStop Frenzy Prompts SEC to Weigh More Short Sale Transparency

House lawmakers meeting Thursday plan to examine the GameStop trading and discuss the dearth of short-sale data

Dave Michaels and Dawn Lim, Wall Street Journal, 17 February 2021

The Securities and Exchange Commission was ordered 11 years ago to impose such rules but never did it. Now, dealing with the fallout from frenetic trading in GameStop Corp. shares, the agency under new leadership is considering using its authority to shine more light on the mechanics of the bearish trades.

Comment: Bearish trades my ass. Naked short selling is a Class A Felony. It is counterfeiting.  It is fraud, It is cheating widows and orphans and wiping out inventors and entrepreneurs, turning gold into lead for profit. It is also on occasion collusion with foreign governments (the UK more often than China) and thus treason, sabotaging the US economy the US now being in a state of war.
