I am writing as a concerned citizen and independent investor in regards to the SEC's proposed rule #S7-24-15. Leveraged and inverse funds are key to my investment portfolio, and I do not want a third party making it cumbersome for me, or worse, preventing me, to go about my personal investing. Investors and their advisors should retain the freedom to make their own investment decisions and buy public securities within a free public market system without government-imposed limitations on investor choice. This proposal is bad for investors, is unnecessary in that there is no reason to target leveraged and inverse funds as opposed to other securities with their own risks, and sets a dangerous precedent in breaking away from SEC regulations by unjustifiably requiring investors to qualify in order to purchase a public security. I do not support this proposal and request that it be withdrawn forthwith from consideration.
