I demand that the SEC reinstate the original uptick rule, with no exceptions whatsoever. Short etf's must be eliminated, as they cannot comply. If you won't do the right thing, then congress must force you to correct this injustice. Also, you must do an internal investigation to determine who has been improperly influenced, or taken bribes, by hedge funds, etf's, etc. Again, if you won't do it, then congress must do it for you. Please do the right thing and clean up, and clean out, the SEC.
