Sept. 29, 2010 - PRLog -- At first the media nicknamed the plummet "Stock Shock" ...which is coincidentally the title of a newly released documentary about stock market crashes. Later the SEC called the event a "flash crash." No matter the name, it was a couple of hours of sheer terror for traders on Wall Street. That is, unless you were a trader interested in short selling.

The movie "Stock Shock" focuses on the practice short selling as an investment. Traders borrow a stock long enough to make money on any price decrease it may have. It's a tough concept to grasp, but the movie lays out the details using cartoons, quirky investors,  and men in tight underwear. Strangely, concepts like naked short selling, flash trading, and stock manipulation begin to make sense.


"Stock Shock" uses the plight of Sirius XM shareholders to show that abusive hedge fund trading and media manipulation can drive a solid 10.00 stock down to a mere 5 cents per share. It is one of the only movies that clearly explains naked short selling as it relates to the concept of a "flash crash."
