| 4,475 votes. Are they all wrong?
(that's A LOT of irate investors!)
The HMGovt epetition is a regulated and monitored site with legal authority !
HMGovt epetition, make short selling illegal !
(or at least better regulated)

* read more -( a lot more ! )

Deramping SHORTERS !
Shorting a rising stock....is much worse when it is done by your resident posters that seemingly are your buddies and convince 'long' holders to give up!
What many pi's fail to grasp is the extent that shorting is taking place. Often we tend to think that the 'shorter' is gone, 'he' is out of the way? You'd be wrong in most cases, for ( he ), the shorter, is often joined by others that keep the stock down !
Some stocks fall after GOOD NEWS!
Shorting or normal profit taking?
The main reason for many pi's selling, is they are afraid they'll be left in losses AND because of the fear of shorters !
Consolidating shares often sees the sp fall as the multi-bagger potential is greatly reduced. Shorters know this and 'get their digs in' with a distinct advantage
Quindell has consolidated 15 for 1 and guess what? The shares are tanking! Probably being shorted again and not just by the professionals. Ordinary investors are having a go as well (if you can't beat 'em....?).
At current rate Quindell 'could' fall back to pre-consolidation HIGHS of 45p eventually...confirming Gotham City's price of 3p ? (45/15=3p)
This is what shorting COULD do to your investments!
BUT, where does that leave the genuine investor that has put stocks like QPP into their pension funds?...holding losses again!
* Once pi's know the stock is being shorted...they'll SELL UP IN THEIR DROVES !
We can't both WIN !
The 'shorts' therefore 'win' their bets, whereas the 'longs' lose the best part of their investment, possibly for some time to come......and just when you thought this couldn't go any lower, THEY'LL SHORT THE STOCK AGAIN !
* Thanks for all your support. We are now heading towards 5,000 votes!
* Investors are saying something? They are voting in their hundreds !
# The big problem with shorting is that THEY (the shorters) WOULD most likely lose most of their money IF they just 'bet' on the price going down without trying to 'help' it down?
'Catch 22' .... No one would know of an RNS to be released that will contain BAD NEWS, if they did and then 'shorted' the stock, then they are guilty of 'insider trading'.
The only sure way to short a stock and WIN is to spread dis-information to defame the company with help from other posters that are in concert with them. To ENSURE that they don't lose the biggest part of their 'short', ironically, then, they must deramp with (seemingly) believable posts.
* When the pro's do it, they simply get the media or well known 'crooked' tipsters, analysts or brokers to do it for them. (say no more).
# The campaign against shorting is for the benefit of the 'cheated' investors that cannot control their investments due to the dirty tricks played out by co-ordinated shorting !
The results will be reviewed by Govt legislators for further action! The FCA will be asked by Davide Serra to conduct an investigation into short selling practices, with the view to either ban short selling, or to be better regulated !
David Serra wants the FCA to investigate 'shorting' practices
How the pros make YOUR money THEIR money - market manipulation !
BE A PART OF IT -please vote!

| The overall numbers were much as I expected. Nice to see them put some meat on the bones of the individual annuity situation with :-
"We expect the Individual Annuity market to contract by c50% in 2014 and by a further half in 2015"
"Our established mass market distribution combined with our expertise in both investment and longevity management mean we can offer a wide range of new and existing products to customers deciding how to convert savings into retirement income.
We are developing low cost income drawdown products with a range of options for customers to choose how much risk they wish to take and how much they want to be guaranteed."
which, though overall isn't a surprise is a bit better than I thought it would be. Looks like the doom mongerers were a bit quick to write us off ( That's not aimed at RAC btw, who took profits after a long time, and no-one ever got poor by taking a profit ).
