I don't have time to format this as I'd like so I'll keep it short:

Please re-instate the up tick rule for short sales! Without it we will continue to see these tremendous sell offs where the 'shorts' force margin calls and drive the market down to new lows.

This will not be a quick or total fix but it will help.

Thank you.
