Subject: SEC Release No. 34-58107 - STOP Naked Shorting of Gold and Silver Mining Shares + GLD + SLV

July 16, 2008

Dear Sir/Madam,

The SEC has stopped the naked shorting of certain financial stocks for a period of time. [Was already illegal, I believe.] Please petition the SEC to do likewise for mining stocks as well as the GLD and SLV ETF's. SEC and the CFTC need to enforce the rules they already have on the books as well to restore proper order to the markets.
