Please do not restrict my access to leveraged or inverse funds. I have been using them with great success for many years.

Leveraged and inverse funds are important to me and they allow me to seek enhanced returns and help protect my portfolio.

I am very capable of understanding leveraged and inverse funds and there performance characteristics, and I don't want a third party evaluating my capability to do so and potentially preventing me from buying them.

I want you to preserve the long standing free public markets were investors and there advisors have the freedom to buy public securities without addtional government imposed limitations on investors.
