Here goes your educated answer with example included:
So the easy way to look at Naked Shorting is this, if you ever done paper trading you know when you buying and selling your shares, gains, exits, entries, it won't impact stock activity nor company trading shares. Simulation of trading makes you as user buy or sell at the real price of stock, make fake profits, and use platform with live numbers for practicing purposes. Right?
So these shares that you are buying and selling are not registered and are not materialized, therefore there is never going to be an impact on real stock because it is all a programming simulation. Market nowadays is programmed and execute values to make a fluctuation based on programming and user impact such as short selling, buying, or selling. Those three people based impacts are registered, therefore you can see transactions on lists. Naked shorting is real similar to paper trading programming wise but in that case shares are borrowed even thought shares are not available, it creates shares and positions out of thin air with programming even thought there are not available shares, affecting real price and people company trading perspective. When naked shorting is taking place, you will see subnormal price actions but cannot see transactions of its fluctuation. This way of programming is real deep and at this moment we cannot ensure who allows this but something I am real sure is that the game ends with them running away with profits even though shares were made up and not registered. Real hard for companies to see if it is taking place unless they have an investigator paying close attention to transactions. They will be able to breakdown price Fluctuation (one by one) vs Transactions that is where they will find something is off. This process is real expensive since it requires massive audit for long times to figure out where is the leak.
Finally, naked shorting is real similar to paper trading but this way of shorting is based on made up shares that DO affect price activity, and can be bought and sold without even being registered. This way many big people manage to make trillions of dollars in market without even deal with people selling or buying, they will always be on top of everything since programming can be fixed, managed, re-programmed, and or manipulated. System has a gap where these actions can be taken but least people will know about this since not everyone understand programming at a really high level. Whoever that knows programming here please discuss this with me.
At the end, people see price won't move and will sell for losses making company price fall and that is when real shorting takes places. Let's call naked shorting the appetizer before main dish (short selling) arrives. They have naked shorting TESLA before and it was exposed. The only way to beat this actions are to become really faithful about company and all of us never stop to buy this. Tesla managed to get over all and prove oil companies supporters wrong and look at them now they are supporting every single TESLA plans since they are real lucrative for all.
Conclusion is that these naked shorting will ever take place in any company to overwhelm people into selling, the most important thing to do is never stop believing in company and news, numbers, catalysts will make all people understand YOU CANNOT EVER SHORT A GREAT COMPANY evil people will leave and there WE WIN! Nobody without programming experience can tell me I am wrong because in this matter they do not understand the subject which means I am saying a fact and otherwise is a speculation
-CIA agent "Naked short selling, which is where Wall Street basically steals money from people by selling them stocks that they don't own that never materialize and people are eventually fooled into thinking the stocks lost value".
You can be a great trader knowing about indicators or fundamentals but you will be greater trader if you know about programming because this is ALL a PROGRAMMING GAME with 3 real human based impacting factors out of many other factors created on worldwide trading programming. It is like playing against a casino when you know how everything works!
