Subject: Uptick rule

February 1, 2009

Dear Chairman Mary Schapiro,
One of the biggest errors in judgment of Chairman Cox, and the last Administration was the withdrawal of the uptick rule. Sound stocks have been damaged. Pension Funds, personal savings and much more have been decimated. It is time to create rules to protect the average American and their savings. Reinstate the uptick rule, and correct this grave error.
Thank You,
