Dear Sir or Ms,
I am writing in support of "Request for Rulemaking Regarding Member Records of "Short" Positions and Public Dissemination of Aggregate Positions by Security". All Companies that are publicly traded must have the same oversite and protection, therefore, we offer our support for an amendment Of NASD Rule 3360 to require NASD broker dealers to maintain a record of "short" selling as those listed on Exchanges or NASDAQ. I believe regulators should fix the problem. Small issuers traded on the Pink Sheets and the OTCBB deserve the same transparency and regulatory oversite of short selling as those listed on Exchanges or NASDQ. This action will hel p curb fraudulent acts that are going on at the present time.
Thank You for your consideration in this important matter
