I believe you should reinstaste the original uptic rule. It worked well for many years and did not undually affect the ability of short sellers to trade effectively and profitably. It did prevent predatory short sales designed to drive down the price of a stock for a few to profit at the expense of investors. The rule came into affect as the result of what happened prior to the great depression. If we ignore history we are doomed to repeat it. Please correct the error of two years ago and put the rule back in affect. Thank you.
