ABSTRACT
The author comments on the decision of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to ban short selling in the country from July 15, to October 17, 2008. He revealed that the ban, along with the approved bailout plan, left various financial companies off the list of attractive short sale candidates. He explained the coverage of the ban, along with the financial market aspects that it affected. The author argued that the timing of the ban created more problem than benefit.
