This is blatant overstepping of SEC regulations. The SEC needs to back off, and let free markets be free.

Leveraged Inverse funds help me to protect and hedge my portfolio. Why would you want to take that away from me?

I don't see what problem this is trying to solve? You don't want people to be able to hedge or profit from the next major market downturn? What is wrong with you all?

Why should I have to qualify to buy an inverse etf? Pretty simple, to understand. This also goes against our free markets being free. Please don't make qualify or have to pass some test, to prove that I know what an inverse ETF is. It is demeaning and unnecessary.
