I am a small investor, a homemaker in fact. I take care of our family's finances. Please reinstate the uptick rule. Make it fair for small investors to invest in stocks. I don't control millions of shares of stocks. I can't drive down the price of a share of stock by selling something I don't even own in the first place. When the rules are catered to the big investors, it hurts the individual investor. Make it fair for everyone. Reinstate the uptick rule and start enforcing the rules that you currently have.
