I am filing this public comment in response to the Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking in connection with the Market Manipulation Rulemaking, P082900. This comment reflects my views and those of Howard Beales on how the FTC could promulgate a manipulation rule, if it chooses to do so, consistent with the market-based approach it takes in its antitrust and consumer protection initiatives. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you, Tim
