Subject: Restoration of Uptick Rule (removed 2007)

May 4, 2009

Dear Sirs,

I do not wish for a response.

I wish to enter a statement for support for the restoration of the "uptick rule" which I feel will greatly support the private individuals like myself and my husband. We have lost tremendously because of the lack of standards and lack of oversight protecting the small investors like ourselves. We only want a fair opportunity for all investors.
