You need to reinstate the uptick rule so it gives individual investors a fair chance to protect our stock investments. I am tired of being beaten up by hedge funds and having all my money sucked away unfaily. How do I stand a chance? Its not fair and should not be allowed. I want to re-enter the market but won't until the rule is reinstated. Thank you.
