Leveraged securities, both long and short, are an essential part of my portfolio and a component of my investment strategy. Like any other security they are publicly traded openly and fairly. I can see no benefit from restricting them, particularly those that are indexes.

People trading in these securities do not need government or needless regulation to protect them.
