Atlantis Technology Group Submits Information to FINRA to Open an Investigation Regarding the Daily Short Volume

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - May 20, 2010) - Atlantis Technology Group (PINKSHEETS: ATNP) submits information to FINRA to open an investigation regarding the daily short volume due to the new approved SEC short selling rule (

From the SEC Rule that came into effect 60 days after February 24, 2010, "We are adopting a short sale-related circuit breaker that, if triggered, will impose a restriction on the prices at which securities may be sold short ('short sale price test' or 'short sale price test restriction'). Specifically, the Rule requires that a trading center establish, maintain, and enforce written policies and procedures reasonably designed to prevent the execution or display of a short sale order of a covered security at a price that is less than or equal to the current national best bid if the price of that covered security decreases by 10% or more from the covered security's closing price as determined by the listing market for the covered security as of the end of regular trading hours on the prior day."

The daily closing price, share short volume, and percentage loss for 9 days of trading from the FINRA Reg SHO daily list (

We are opening this investigation due to the fact that possible violations into the new SEC short selling rule have occurred. Investors might be scared into selling their shares while, quote from the SEC rule "potentially manipulative or abusive short selling," could be occurring.
