I believe leveraged and inverse funds are important to me, and may allow me to seek enhanced returns or help protect my portfolio.

I am capable of understanding leveraged and inverse funds and their performance characteristics, and I DON'T want a third-party evaluating my capability to do so and potentially prevent me from buying them.

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.

I have been trading leveraged and inverse funds for many years and hope to be able to continue doing so.
