To Whom it May Concern:

RE: SEC File No. 4-500. Request for Rulemaking Regarding Member Records of "Short" Positions and Reporting and Public Dissemination of Aggregate Positions by Security.

Please amend NASD rule 3360 and require NASD brokers 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 support the petition that can be read at the following URL:http://sec.gov/rules/petitions/petn4-500.pdf

Thank you,

Robert Mourey
