Subject: File No. 4-500

I am an individual investor. I am writing to voice my support for the amendment to NASD Rule 3360 which would require NASD broker dealers to maintain a record of total "short" positions in all customer and proprietary firm accounts in all publicly traded equity securities as well as report this information to the NASD for public dissemination of the short positions by security.
I think that it should be noted that fraud is common in OTC and Pink Sheet markets and that any new rule which adds to transparency can only lead to leveling the playing field.
