CCIV Stock News: Lucid Motors CCIV shares rebound as weak jobs report means low rates forever!

Ivan Brian, 07 May 2021

No in-depth technical analysis needed here just buy anything and don’t worry about it the Fed is in the market forever. That is the tone of equity markets post a terrible Friday jobs report as yields plunge. CCIV faces some resistance at $20 first before thinking about anything else higher. Chart is still bearish and this may be the case for future session but for now equities are loving zero rates for longer.

CCIV shares continue to retreat as the hype fizzes out of many retail meme stocks while the economy reopens.

In Pursuit of the Naked Short

Alexis Stokes, Texas State University

Journal of Law and Business 5/1 (Spring 2009)

This article explores the origins of naked short-selling litigation; considers
the failures of significant naked short-selling lawsuits in federal court;
surveys the obstacles erected collectively by constitutional standing requirements, the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act, brokerage firms, death spiral financiers, and the Depository Trust and Clearing Corporation; examines the efficacy of Regulation SHO, SEC rule 10b-21, and new FINRA rules; discusses recent state legislation and state court litigation; and identifies non-litigation options to curb naked short-selling. Ultimately, this article seeks to answer the question: If manipulative naked short-selling is more than a mythological scapegoat for
small cap failure, what remedies are, or should be, available?
