Subject: Uptick Rule

I just wanted to do what I could to contact the SEC to encourage the reinstatement of the uptick rule. There's no question that volatility has increased dramatically since it the rule was removed in July 2007. After 70 years with the rule, it seems like the risk/reward of reinstating it is minimal.
