SEC Issues New Rules to Prevent Naked Short Sales

Today the SEC announced that it has issued new rules to prevent naked short selling. This is a good step. However, these new rules will be useless if the SEC, Wall Street’s whipping boy, doesn’t actually enforce the rules. I hope the SEC is serious about stopping naked short sales and other abuses on Wall Street.
