Subject: Uptick Rule

Dear Ms. Schapiro:

I am writing to encourage you to reinstate the ôVptickRul as soon as possible. I am a small investor but have invested funds in the stock market for more than 30 years believing in its long term stability. My portfolio has been negatively affected by the recent market trends and my time to recover is shorter than I would like.

I appreciate your taking time (or someone on your staff) to take note of my request.

Best regards,

Nancy Schuth
