The Securities and Exchange Commission proposed new Rule 13f-2 and amendments to Regulation SHO and CAT to increase market transparency regarding short selling. Under the proposed changes, market participants would be required to collect and submit certain short sale-related data to the SEC on a monthly basis. The Commission then would make aggregate data about large short positions, including daily short sale activity data, available to the public for each individual security.

One of the easiest ways to make a massive difference is through contacting your congressional representative and advocating for a specific rule or regulation.
We'll help connect you directly with your member of Congress so that you can amplify your voice and advocate for real-world change. If it helps, we'll even provide you with an outline of a script to help you support your advocacy.
We will put together a synopsis of the rule and recommended language for comment letters towards the end of March. Sign-up below to be alerted when it's ready.
Each month we will publish a monthly issue update, summarizing developments on progress on key issues, and highlighting ways to take action. In addition, we will send out alerts when important advocacy opportunities are identified.
