SEC Now Aims To Guide Asia on Illegal Short Selling

The SEC now aims to guide Asia on illegal short selling, which has raised many concerns primarily back in U.S soil.

The Securities and Exchange Commission has failed to tackle the root of the problem back at home, prompting investors to question the SEC’s authority overseas.

Bangkok Post reports that the Securities and Exchange Commission has asked the Association of Securities Companies (ASCO) members to “adjust their short sell guidelines based on the SEC’s instructions.”

Asco has reaffirmed “there is no naked short selling on the Thai exchange.”

Asco president, Pichet Sithi-Amnuai said the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) has regularly examined short selling in cooperation with Asco, and has confirmed there is no naked short selling.

SEC Secretary-General Pornanong Budsaratragoon said the regulator asked Asco members to adjust their short selling guidelines based on a notice from the SEC.

Asco on the other hand suggested the SEC look into the low commission fees offered by some brokers back at home to ensure a level playing field among investors.

SET President Pakorn Peetathawatchai said, “the Thai stock exchange will not allow naked short selling to take place.”

“If anyone is found using this method, we will punish them severely.”

Public perception of such trading practices in the Asian nation remains deeply negative, with local retail traders staging protests against these activities from time to time.

In the United States, naked short selling continues to be a big problem.

In September, Citadel Securities was charged for illegal short selling violations by the SEC.

However, entities such as Citadel merely ‘pay a fine to play’.

Asia has a much stronger protection policy for its investors against naked short selling compared to the United States, earning the respect from investors overseas.

Companies Affected by Naked Short Selling in The United States

Since the ‘meme stock frenzy’ of 2021, retail investors have raised concerns of naked short selling in GameStop and AMC Entertainment stock.

Ex-Citadel data scientist Patrick McConlogue says Citadel and others were able to make their money back during the trading halts, cheating investors out of their money.

Stocks such as AMC and MULN (Mullen Automotive) have been on the NYSE Threshold Securities List many times over, a clear sign a stock is being manipulated by naked shorts, says Yahoo Finance’s Jared Blikre.

A recent case that has taken regulators by a surprise is that of the MMTLP scandal.

Investors allege the strong probability of illegal short selling in the ticker after transcripts between the FINRA and the SEC were leaked of a fraud investigation that was occurring just moments before the U3 halt and delisting of MMTLP.

Companies such as Genius Group, FingerMotion and Global Tech Industries have also been open about illegal short selling investigations.

As more businesses come forward about the market injustices they are experiencing within their company’s stock ticker, the more we begin to realize just how bad the US fraud in the stock market is.

Wondering which stocks Frank Nez is holding? Which stocks is Frank Nez buying?

A Massive Group of Investors Will Now Occupy FINRA

A massive group of investors will now occupy FINRA offices and locations across the United States on Friday, December 8.

#OccupyFINRA sheds light on the anniversary of the MMTLP U3 halt that occurred last year, just days before the deletion of the ticker.

Investors have raised awareness of the market injustice that caused families to lose their homes and much worse when their money became trapped.

It’s been nearly a year now with no resolution from U.S. regulators.

Congress has been very proactive thanks to thousands of investors calling their representatives in what has been one of the most organized Main Street events in history.

Two letters were recently sent to the SEC Chair and FINRA CEO on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week from two different members of Congress.

On Tuesday, Congress member Jared Huffman wrote to Gary Gensler and FINRA CEO Robert Cook describing constituents who are experiencing financial distress as a result of FINRA’s trading halt of MMTLP.

“They [The Constituents] are requesting affirmation that SEC and/or FINRA acted within their regulatory authority and operated under standard practices by issuing the trading halt, and a written response outlining what they can expect to occur with regard to their current holdings, including timelines,” said the Congress member.

On Wednesday, Congress member Vicente Gonzalez wrote to SEC Chairman Gary Gensler also requesting answers on the MMTLP fraud.

More than 40,000 letters have been sent to Congress this year, with several of our reports on the matter now being cited by an official Congressional report.

Congress is very well aware of investors’ concerns.

It’s important to note that any protests occurring next month is suggested to remain peaceful and investors should practice safety.

Investors participating in Occupy FINRA can access all FINRA offices and locations here.

This is a developing story.

Investors Now Start a Petition To Ban Illegal Short Selling

Investors now start a petition to ban illegal short selling, otherwise referred to as ‘naked short selling’.

The petition calls for a temporary ban on short selling itself, which would turn off the pipeline for naked short selling.

Several retail investors have already shared the petition on X, formerly known as Twitter, in an effort to raise awareness of market injustices and collectively support this strategy to get the markets back on track.

The news comes shortly after South Korea regulators announced their move to root out illegal short selling after several protests from investors.

Public perception of such trading practices in the Asian nation remains deeply negative.

Investors in the United States continue to make that strive in order to create change.

“In 2023 alone, over 30 publicly listed companies have taking matters into their own hands and are investigating their stock for abusive naked short selling, and many found a share imbalance during their investigation,” reads the petition.

“In June of 2023 the SEC admitted naked short selling is still occurring as they charged an Investment Adviser for “Abusive Naked Short Selling Scheme”.

South Korea has officially banned short selling in November of 2023 through June of 2024 after regulators found “routine” abuse of naked short selling from foreign and institutional investors.

Since Naked Short Selling is still occurring we demand a temporary halt of ALL short selling until there is a resolution.”

In the United States, naked short selling continues to be a big problem.

In September, Citadel Securities was charged for illegal short selling violations by the SEC.

According to the SEC’s order, for a five-year period, it is estimated that Citadel Securities incorrectly marked millions of orders, inaccurately denoting that certain short sales were long sales and vice versa.

You can sign the petition here.

Congress Interest in The MMTLP Fraud Grows Per New Letters

Congress interest in the MMTLP fraud grows per new letters sent to SEC Chairman Gary Gensler.

Two letters have recently been sent to the SEC Chair and FINRA CEO on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week from two different members of Congress.

On Tuesday, Congress member Jared Huffman wrote to Gary Gensler and FINRA CEO Robert Cook describing constituents who are experiencing financial distress as a result of FINRA’s halt trading of MMTLP on December, 8, 2022, just days before the deletion of the ticker on December 13, 2022.

“Some of my constituents are seeking information on why this action was taken and the future state of their investments.

They are requesting affirmation that SEC and/or FINRA acted within their regulatory authority and operated under standard practices by issuing the trading halt, and a a written response outlining what they can expect to occur with regard to their current holdings, including timelines,” said the Congress member.

On Wednesday, Congress member Vicente Gonzalez wrote to SEC Chairman Gary Gensler also requesting answers on the MMTLP fraud.

“I have heard from many of my constituents in South Texas who were adversely affected by this decision. I believe it is imperative that, as public officials and offices, we maintain a transparent process..

As a Member of the House Financial Services Committee, I take an active interest in ensuring transparency and the proper regulations are in place to protect investors and maintain efficient markets.

That is why I urge you to investigate the events surrounding the trading halt of MMTLP and ensure no wrongdoing took place. I also ask that you make the findings available to the public,” said the letter.

As of today, MMTLP investors remain hidden in the dark from our regulators.
