Dear Sirs and Madams:

Where is the uptick rule?

The hedge fund community just piled on and took the market down 5% in three days. The Vix jumped 27% today.

If the stock market goes down big, consumer confidence will plummet. Wealth will evaporate and the economy will suffer.

Please reinstate the uptick rule.

Thank you.
