I would like to express my comments on two issues:

1. Keep the short sell rule as it is now, do not change it.

2. Eliminate the pattern day trader amount or lower it to a requirement of 10,000 dollars.

People should be able to make their own decisions and learn to trade responsible - just like driving or hunting.
