Blaming the Elimination of the Uptick Rule For Market Volatility
Is the elimination last July of the uptick rule that limited short sales responsible for increased stock volatility?

Nonsense, say others; the subprime and credit crisis account for the volatility, not elimination of a technical trading rule. WSJ, Blame Game: The 'Uptick' Rule Debate.
