To the and Exchange Commission,

I'm counting on you to make a stronger rule that closes the loophole.
Americans who've worked hard to save for retirement deserve peace of
mind about their financial security.

I was a licensed real estate broker for many years. As such I had a
fiduciary responsibility to the clients I served.  After those years of
interacting and truthfully helping my clients, working in their best
interests, I beieve I'm in a strong position to weigh in on this
The financial brokers and traders owe it to their clients to be
helpful, trustworthy and honest in their dealings with them. To not
charge them exorbitant fees or mislead people in order to line their
own pockets with wrongfully obtained remuneration.

Please help all people in this regard. Close the loop hole.

Thank you.


Mr. Mark Thomas
