Unfortunately the ban is only on shorting stocks identified on the Spanish and Italian markets so there is no disparity in the marketplace. Can't see the FCA having the balls to go for an all out ban, good as it might be.
Interesting across the board today. Every one of my stocks (barring those suspended or gone AWOL to other exchanges) down in the red by between 2 and 18%. On almost every one however, buys significantly outweigh the sells. Seems anyone with cash to spare is buying the dips and still has confidence in the investments in spite of the threat to world health. Long and strong I say and good luck to all. Traders' dream at the moment if they have crystal balls or maybe balls of steel. Think I'll go take another shot of Tamnavulin and ease myself into the weekend. Enjoy and hope for better things on Monday.
