Quote of the Day: Uptick Rule

Straight dope:

"To suggest that the removal of this rule is causing the markets to go

am incapable of ever understanding it.’

-Jim Bianco, WSJ

The article specifically mentioned Mario Gabelli, Martin J. Whitman, and Jim Cramer as opposing the elimination of the Uptick rule.
