The article reports on the decision of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to consider several options including a proposal from three exchanges that could generate fewer operational difficulties than the alternatives. The SEC reportedly intends to issue a short-selling proposal by the end of March 2009. It details the uptick rule proposal, and suggests that broker dealers would still need to make systems changes under the exchanges' plan.
