According to the SEC, and the "Alternative Uptick Rule" short selling is not allowed on "a stock that has dropped more than 10 ...


What if you write $$ P[R_{n+1} = d|F_n] = 1 - P[R_{n+1} = u|F_n] ? $$ Let us write $P(u) = P[R_{n+1} = u|F_n]$ Then the part to show is $$ u \bar{S}_n P(u) + d \bar{S}_n (1-P(u)) $$ and this $$ \bar{S}_n \left(d +(u-d)P(u) \right), $$ where we just expanded terms and then extracted the coefficients.
