I would like to see the former Rule 10a-1 that was eliminated by the SEC in 2007 (uptick rule). However, that particilar method appears to not be one of the options that are under consideration. Of the methods being proposed, I would suggest that the "proposed uptick rule" is the best choice.

I would offer the fact that this is the simplest option that everyone can understand. It also is provides a leveler playing field for all people trading securities.
