You should reinstate the uptick rule in its original form, immediately. As a small, 'average' investor who is still in the stock market, I can tell you that if you do not act to reinstate the uptick rule, I will be leaving the stock market and I won't be coming back. This is getting a little bit ridiculous - when does the SEC act? Apparently a change in Administrations, does not bring about a change in the SEC.
