There's no reason why you need extra regulations to make sure I understand the risks of Leveraged and Inverse Funds, or that it is something that is suitable for me. I use these trading products often and use them responsibly.

These products allow me access to hedge my positions affordably, and they should not be treated differently when there are many other ways to gain leverage including margin on forex and futures trading.

I am against the new proposed rule to add regulations to my ability to access leverage and inverse funds. It is bad and will hurt individual investors by limiting their access that professionals use on a daily basis.
