I have been a long time investor at various times in the leveraged and inverse funds provided by Proshares. They are an important part of my portfolio. I completely understand the risk of these investment vehicles as well as how they can help me protect my portfolio in ways I can't do easily otherwise. I dont want a third party evaluating my capability to use them and potentially prevent me from buying them. I want to preserve the long-standing free public markets where investors and our advisors have the freedom to buy public securities without additional government-imposed limitations on investor choice.
