I believe that this would be a bad move for investors both large and small. I manage my own portfolio of stocks. Even with the increased risks (that I am well aware of), leveraged and inverse ETFs generate a significant portion of my returns. Additionally, if my brokerage stopped offering many of these funds I would consider (with much hardship and regret) leaving the brokerage for one that supports these funds.
I hope my message makes an impact in your decision to omit this proposal, and possible others like it, from future regulations.
