Short selling restricted by the Spanish Stock Exchange

REGULATORS around the world are banning the short selling of shares in vulnerable companies due to the Coronavirus.

In Spain a list of 69 companies listed on the Ibex (Bolsa de Madrid) Stock Exchange have been given this protection in order to ensure that the companies don’t suffer such a huge crisis in confidence that they go under.

The decision is also to ensure that if share prices drop dramatically that the companies cannot be bought up by foreign interests which could be to the disadvantage of the Spanish economy.
