Please reinstate the up tick rules. The short seller can push down a stock as much as they want. They have help destroy 401k values. The average person can not compete with the large funds that can short with out a uptick rule. Please reinstall the uptick rule, it was put in place years ago to prevent the ablity to drive a stock down as much as they want, if they are shorting a stock who wants to buy to counter and lose money.
