You are imposing too many restrictions Traders can't breathe.
If you are going to crack down on short sales again then please give us back something like undoing the T3 that restricts everybody to 3 day trades in a 5 day period or reverse those additional SEC fees you imposed earlier this year(I'm sure you are not making any more money by doing that because the bigger traders have just cut back on their excessive trading and this is hurting the rest of us who thrive on volatility -- so what was the point of increasing the fees?) or shut your face about investigating flash orders. Give something back please YOU ARE CLAMPING DOWN ON ALL CORNERS with all this regulation
If you want to restrict short sales again, please give us something back or I won't vote for Obama in the next election
I'm sure the entire trading community feels the same way.
