The government is always making rules against the small investor in favor of the large ones. I have been trading stocks since 1988. I have had 3,000+ hours of training and lessons in stocks and options through Think or Swim and TD Ameritrade. SOXL has gone up 5000x in the last 11 years. Why should that opportunity be removed from the small investor? My employer choose Bank of Oklahoma for IRA and they don't have options available except through leveraged ETF's. I don't trade shorts because of the fees but the could be used as a hedge.
