Leveraged and inverse funds are an integral and essential part of my portfolio. As a senior citizen, it is important for me to maintain access to these investment tools for my financial well being.

They are easy to understand, use, and implement. Options and futures are far more risky and difficult for the average person to understand. NOT SO with leveraged and inverse funds and ETF's.

You will be doing a great disservice to all investing Americans should you proceed with this outlandish and misguided measure to ban such useful investment tools.

Please reconsider moving forward with this government-imposed limitation on the free rights of Americans to invest as they see fit.
