Dear Sirs: Please reinstate and ENFORCE the previously used UPTIC rule. I am absolutely convinced that short selling when a stock is going down of its own accord exacebates an already bad situation for small investors like me. Please reinstate the original uptic rule and ENFORCE it.
Thank you,
Joe Currie
