Please bring back the original uptick rule and ban "naked short selling". The laxidy of the regulations under the previous administration did a lot of damage to the markets, and heavens only knows how much of the money I lost on my stocks was caused by the permissive shorting environment. My faith in the market won't be restored until things go back to the way they used to be and the playing field is leveled between the longs and the shorts.

Thanks for your consideration.
