Dear Mary
What you have done is a good start but it is insufficient.
The high speed trading must end for there to be a fair market. Neither professionals or individuals can deal with computers operating in microseconds. Hedge funds using these tool and the double and triple shorting etf's can overwhelm the market in the last 20 minutes of trading and send it down significantly. Restore the up tick rule and eliminate the foolish permission that approved the double and triple shorting ET'S. This market is a mockery of what a free market was meant to be. Cramer who has a stock market show called MAD MONEY and was a former hedge fund manager himself has repeatedly called for these changes.
