I am in favor of the SECs proposed disclosure rules for brokers. For the U.S. financial markets to function effectively, individual investors must be well informed. I favor disclosure of information that clarifies the value of the asset, the risks involved, and the conflicts of interests of those who are promoting its sale. The SEC should be guided primarily by the interests of individual shareholders.

Thank you for your consideration.
