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

I believe this is unnescessary and intrusive 
1. I fully understand the risk of everything that I invest in. I do not need protection from myself, and believe that this would set a dangerous precedent against personal accountability 
2. Free markets are critical to sound monetary policy. Where regulations are unnescessarily restrictive, adverse unintended consequences always follow. Clarify risks by all means, but do not remove willing investors' ability to freely chose their instruments 
3. Leveraged / Inverse funds are a valuable means of achieving real returns in an inflationary environment, deliberately created through misguided central banking policy. They should be encouraged, and access increased, not hindered
