I am writing to encroached you to not go through with your proposal to alter/eliminate my ability to purchase leveraged/inverse funds.

Leveraged and inverse funds are important to em, and they allow em to seek enhanced returns or help me protect my portfolio. I am capable of understanding leveraged and inverse funds and their performance characteristics, and I dont want a third party evaluating my capability to do so and potentially preventing me from buying them. Lastly, I want to preserve the long-standing free public markets where investors and their advisors have the freedom to buy public securities without additional government-imposed limitations on investor choice.

Thank you.
