Subject: uptick rule

February 1, 2009

chairman schapiro, reinstate the uptick rule and help level the playing field for the majority of u.s. investors. it should never have been abolished in the first place. in addition to the uptick rule reinstatement, the ban on naked short selling also needs to be reinstated. both of these are glaring examples of the corruption of sound financial practices brought about by special interest groups and corrupt officials. do what is right for the american people. thank you.
sincerely, mark grieger
