Why this petition matters
Naked shorting is the illegal practice of short selling shares that have not been affirmatively determined to exist. Ordinarily, traders must borrow a stock or determine that it can be borrowed before they sell it short. So naked shorting refers to short pressure on a stock that may be larger than the tradable shares in the market.
Despite being made illegal after the 2008–09 financial crisis, naked shorting continues to happen because of loopholes in rules and discrepancies between paper and electronic trading systems.
We want this to be investigated and brought to justice, it would make the market more transparent and honest.
People want to see some changes without the overwhelming silence from the government and it's officials.
It is time for a well regulated market without any backdoor interference!
