Dear SEC -

I am totally in favor of re-instating the 'Up-Tick' rule that was implemented in the 1930s and has served to promote free and fail markets since then.

I specifically urge an implementation of a 'Plus-Tick' rule over other variations that have been proposed.

Thank you for your consideration,
David D. Elliott
