I don't understate how difficult it was to see for Cox and the SEC that naked shorting should be illegal.  And how difficult would it be to reinstate the shorting on an uptick rule?


It's a little late, but I think it's a good move.


Here's a comment from an investment service:

Snags, I don't know what naked shorting is, but it sure sounds like fun!

 
By the way, watch out for the PC police. You used the words cox and naked in the same sentence.

Wild swings in the futures tonight, with the new shorting regs, should be a big open (god I hope)

Problem is the futures are barely up, but were down big when Asia opened.  Please Please Please open big.

I've got a trade on, went out on a limb, need a big open.

We're due for a big move up.  Dennis Miller and some other "expert" on Fox news both said that we are just at the beginning of a long bear market.
