Please reinstate the uptick rule so that we do not have any more disasters like we did this past year, in which good businesses and banks were driven into the ground by endless short-selling. The safe-guards which were put into place in the 1930's served us well for seven decades. They need to be reinstated to protect not only individual investors, but our capitalistic economy as well. Those of us who are small but serious investors cannot afford to have our investments demolished by the greed of endless short-selling.
