Leveraged and inverse funds are important to me and they allow me to seek enhanced returns or protect my portfolio. Restricting access to these funds would detrimentally affect my ability to manage my portfolio, needed for successful retirement.

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

Regulations would probably widen the already wide wealth gap between the wealthiest people and the general public, by restricting access for the general public while giving access primarily to the wealthy.
