RE: access to leveraged funds
Small investors such as myself need access to inverse funds, especially leveraged inverse funds.

Everyone is worried about a market crash . . . stop losses no longer work due to high volatility. If there is a concern, perhaps there could be a limit on how many shares one may purchase.
