Subject: Uptick Rule Reinstatement Request

February 1, 2009

Dear Chairman Mary Schapiro,
My understanding is that one of the greatest errors in financial judgment by the Bush Administration was the elimination of theuptick”!rule. It has led to unnecessary ravages in the financial markets and the stocks in my IRAs.
Along with my personal accounts, many other US citizes pension funds, personal savings and much more have been decimated. Please create effective rules and provide the necessary resources to protect our pension, 401k and saving accounts and bring back theuptick”!rule. Thank you in advance for your attention to this matter.
Respectfully yours,
Ron and Julie Bays
