Good Morning.

Absolutely, positively, you must stop all the naked short selling that is going on in the marketplace- especially in the commodities and precious metals markets (both the physical sales and equity sales).

Were a private citizen to sell naked shorts in any other part of this country, he would be jailed for fraud.

Sincerely,

James W. Ritter
