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

I have been a self directed investor in the stock market for over 15-years and have been using long and short leveraged ETF funds for almost 10-years. During that time there have been several swings in the market and I have found benefits in using these types of funds in both enhancing my returns and limiting downside risks. These investment products have become an important part of my strategy in growing and protecting my portfolio and a way of actually investing in 
a more conservative manner compared to 
other alternatives. I also do not wish to be 
required to undergo additional qualifications 
or regulations which could severely restrict or eliminate my ability to use these products as 
successfully as I have in the past.
