Main Street investors have increased their buying of stocks during the current market downdraft.
Where is all the selling pressure coming from?
Wall Street short sellers are attacking the market to make a killing, tank the economy, and get Trump out of office.
Trump must reinstate the uptick rule to stop this now!
Recent data shows that main street investors have increased their buying of stocks during the current dramatic downturn. And yet the market is tankingthe Dow closed down 9.99% today. Where is all the selling pressure coming from? It is from short sellers who are using the coronavirus panic to attack the market in an attempt to steal a fortune from Main Street investors. Short sellers do not have to own stock to sell it. They borrow the stock, sell it, and hope to make money by buying back at a lower price. The short sellers are attacking the market by relentlessly borrowing more and more stock and selling it, overwhelming the Main Street buyers.
This is how George Soros made a fortune by short selling the British pound.
As the market goes relentless lower and lower, Main Street buyers are pressured to sell as they see the value of their retirement assets tanking. This further feeds the downdraft to the advantage of the short sellers.
A few more days in the market like today and the risk is that Main Street investors, especially those near retirement, will throw in the towel and sell, taking massive losses and giving massive profits to the short sale raiders.

Much easier said than done and analysis in the past shows that banning shorts doesn’t much affect prices in a multi trillion dollar stock market.
Hellfire missile strike on Sore-Ass wouldn’t bother *me* much if I heard about it afterwards.
Make so that you can buy stocks and sell stocks on demand.
Ban everything else.
You in or your out. No other speculation allowed.
Stay tuned. As president Trump is about to deliver a speech to the citizens about suspending all taxes indefinitely, Nancy Pelosi is seen behind him ripping up the tax code. Greta, thunderbolts & lightning, Thor is protesting outside our house with all of the rest of CONgre$$ and the federal reserve cartel members.
See you on the dark side of criminals.
You’re absolutely right. Short sellers, though clear contributors to big selloffs, perform important functions in helping the markets to operate efficiently. Yes, they can contribute to major selloffs but they also operate as a kind of brake on markets from overheating on the upside. For every executed short sale, there’s a buyer at that price. It’s basic economics that price is where the buyer and seller meet. The short seller helps to create a market at a given price point that might otherwise be unavailable if only ‘longs’ were allowed to sell. And, of course, shorts can get squeezed and contribute to major spikes on the upside as well.
The voice of reason. Short sellers make convenient scapegoats for failing CEOs (in normal times).
Soroznazi. Just as Moi proposed. It fits his MO exactly. And hes been working 25/7 to undermine USA. And he wants an obedient puppet back in the White House. I bet soroznazi is in this market manipulation. Up to his evil eyeballs
That is exactly what is going on. Short selling should have been banned a long time ago.
Im no expert, but it seems to me that a more likely explanation is that the massive sell-off is driven by short-sellers who have to sell assets just to cover their purchases. This would explain why nearly every asset class is in decline including those that should rise and fall in opposite directions under normal market conditions.
“Much easier said than done and analysis in the past shows that banning shorts doesnt much affect prices in a multi trillion dollar stock market.”
Agree. I can’t speak for the British Pound and Soros, but what’s happening here is simply the market catching up to events on the ground and also realizing that the ‘new-normal’ after Coronavirus (hopefully) passes will be FAR DIFFERENT than the pre-Coronavirus days, with entire sectors of our economy set back to zero (such as cruise lines and possibly air travel and hotels) and having to try to claw its way back into viability.
This from 2018, true then and true today (sorry for posting from CNN):
“Machines are driving Wall Street’s wild ride, not humans”
This too shall pass.
The aggressive short sellers are gonna take it up the woohoo.
AAPL ~$350 by May.
I tried to explain to my husband that the market was being manipulated not just because of the virus but to fan and expand a crisis. He thought I was seeing conspiracy theories. I reminded him that there was money to be made in the destruction of a nation(or a presidency). Problem is I could not quite show him the how and the who. This article sure is timely.
The market has become too clever by half. It has become a game board with complex rules. Most simply ride it while others play a game so many do not understand. It is as if several games are being played on the same field with only the playing surface and goal posts being the same.
Yep, what you said.
I also think shorting may speed up the eventual bottoming process.
People don’t realize that shorts can easily lose money, too.
And I think short-selling a currency, like Soros did, is different than short selling a stock. He was basically saying that the UK had a foolhardy currency policy, and put his money where his mouth was.
