I'd like to hear what others have to say on the subject of Naked Short Shorting and other forms of economic warfare. For a good description of naked short selling, you can watch this presentation by Patrick Bryne, CEO of Overstock.com: [video=youtube;aGyPQ_cO6l8]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGyPQ_cO6l8[/video] "Published on Dec 19, 2013 On December 17, 2013, Patrick M. Byrne, Ph.D., Chairman and CEO of Overstock.com, discussed "Naked Shorts, Bust-Outs, and the Once and Future Cataclysm: Economic Warfare as an Instrument of Transnational Organized Crime." John Lenczowski, Founder and President of IWP, offered a brief welcome, and Frank Gaffney, Founder and President of Center for Security Policy, introduced Dr. Bryne." I need to re-watch the video myself. I'll report back after I've done some more research. I would like if someone could lay out how short selling works in simple layman terms that anyone would understand. If no one replies, I will write the response in a few days. I'm also looking for any information on slop within the stock exchange, ie transfer of stocks taking three days to get from place to place when the information actually moves almost instantly via computer networks. Why does is that stock is allowed to bounce back and forth between these computers for days at a time for seemingly no reason that I can see? If someone has answers, I would like to hear from you!
