Subject: File No. S7-24-15
From: Michael Pitcher

January 30, 2020

I am adamantly opposed to SEC Proposed Rule #S7-24-15 and request that it not be enacted because it will make it more difficult for me to invest smartly to provide for my family.

Leveraged and inverse funds are important to me, and they allow you to seek enhanced returns and help to protect my portfolio.

I am plenty capable of understanding leveraged and inverse funds and their performance characteristics, and I dont want some uninvited third party evaluating my capability to do so and potentially preventing me from buying them.

I want to preserve the long-standing free public markets where investors and their chosen advisors have the freedom to buy public securities without additional government-imposed limitations on investor choice.

Regardless of the Government's intentions, I respectfully demand it to refrain from stepping deeper into my affairs.
