That wouldn't fix this. It wasn't a matter of him cancelling orders that someone picked up on, it was him placing orders that gave the appearance of a greater market than actually existed, causing the price to move in a certain direction, then cancelling orders before they got picked up.

IMO the most important change to air travel following the September 11th attacks happened before the attacks were over. Passengers realized that a hijacking could end with their deaths and the deaths of others. Now any hijackers will have to deal with all the passengers of the plane rather than just one or two people.
