Leveraged and inverse funds are highly important to me as they allow me to seek enhanced returns and/or assist me in protecting my portfolio. 

Despite being a retail investor, I am capable on understanding these instruments and evaluating their performance. I do not need or want a third party evaluating my understanding of these instruments and placing limitations on my ability to trade. 

I believe it is utterly imperative that the principles of the free market be conserved, and that investors and their advisors must be free to buy public securities without limitations imposed by a government body or otherwise. 

This proposal has minimal positive impact on investors, but the potential for immeasurable negatives.
