Comment on SEC Proposed Rule #S7-24-15: 

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on this proposed rule. 

I oppose this rule based on the following: 

1. Leveraged and inverse funds are important to me and allow me to seek enhanced returns when I feel it is appropriate and provide important portfolio protection. 

2. I am personally capable of understanding these types of funds and their performance characteristics. I do not need a third party, especially the government, making assessments regarding my ability to utilize this funds. 

3. We need to preserve free public markets where investors make their own decisions regarding the types of public securities they purchase. It should always be my decision on whether or not I want investment assistance. This proposed rule will impose an unnecessary, government-imposed, limitation on investor choice. 

Thank you again for the opportunity to comment.
