I support the reinstatement of the 'Uptick' rule and active enforcement of the naked short selling rule. For 70 years these rules kept the greed of traders in check serving the interests of market participants well. Other alternatives such as a 'best bid' or 'circuit breaker test' are unproven in the real world......why experiment when known solutions are effective and proven?

Thank you.
