LIVE has also been on the NASDAQ Threshold Security List (aka "Naked Short List") for 23 consecutive trading days:

This means that for five consecutive settlement days:

  • There are aggregate fails to deliver at a registered clearing agency of 10,000 shares or more per security;
  • The level of fails is equal to at least one-half of one percent of the issuer's total shares outstanding; and
  • The security is included on a list published by a self-regulatory organization (SRO).

Short sellers and their corresponding broker dealers are failing to deliver shares of LIVE to broker dealers where clients have purchased shares in the open market. These clients are the beneficial owners of the shares and their broker dealers are required to BUYIN the accounts at broker dealers that are failing to deliver the shares to their rightful owner. Broker dealers that are failing to deliver use many excuses to try to interrupt or circumvent this BUYIN process. Since this has occurred for 28 consecutive trading days (over 5 weeks), brokers must be on notice that BOTH the broker dealer failing to deliver and the broker deal failing to BUYIN are in violation of Regulation SHO if they are relying on an invalid exemption or excuse.

Friction Factor calculates if a fair market is being made in the shares of LIVE. 58% of the previous 38 trading days have been positive or bullish-biased and 42% have been negative or bearish-biased.

Regulation SHO requires bona-fide market-making activities to include making purchases and sales in roughly comparable amounts. The Commission has stated that bona-fide market-making DOES NOT include activity that is related to speculative selling strategies or investment purposes of the broker-dealer and is disproportionate to the usual market making patterns or practices of the broker-dealer in that security. Likewise, where a market-maker posts continually at or near the best offer, but does not also post at or near the best bid, the market-maker's activities would not generally qualify as bona-fide market-making. Moreover, a market-maker that continually executes short sales away from its posted quotes would generally not be considered to be engaging in bona-fide market-making.
