Frequently Asked Questions
What is Naked Short Selling?
In a "naked" short sale, the seller does not borrow or arrange to borrow the securities in time to make delivery to the buyer within the standard three-day settlement period. 3 As a result, the seller fails to deliver securities to the buyer when delivery is due (known as a "failure to deliver" or "fail").
What is a Threshold Security?
Threshold securities are equity securities that have an aggregate fail to deliver position for:
*five consecutive settlement days at a registered clearing agency (e.g., National Securities Clearing Corporation (NSCC))
*totaling 10,000 shares or more
*equal to at least 0.5% of the issuer's total shares outstanding
Threshold securities only include issuers registered or required to file reports with the Commission ("reporting companies"). Therefore, securities of issuers that are not registered or required to file reports with the Commission, which includes the majority of issuers on the Pink Sheets, cannot be threshold securities. This is because the SROs need to look to the total outstanding shares of the issuer in order to calculate whether or not the securities meet the definition of a "threshold security." For non-reporting companies, reliable information on total outstanding shares is difficult to determine.http://www.sec.gov/spotlight/keyregshoissues.htm

Why is this service useful?
Understanding what percentage of any particular stocks daily volume that is naked short is extremely important in understanding the level of manipulation occurring on that particular security. Market Makers and big traders are shorting companies in increased frequency. Short Sellers do not care whether or not a business plan is feasible, but rather how much volume they can capitalize on, by shorting "selling shares" to new investors that may otherwise believe in the company or business plan. Understanding the amount of negative pressure on a stock can help gauge what the market sentiment of a particular stock is, and or what the big money is doing.
