Spain extends short-selling ban for three months to end-Jan
MADRID Nov 1 (Reuters) - Spain's stock market regulator said on Thursday it would extend a short-selling ban on securities for three months to Jan. 31 to discourage investors from trying to profit from the country's economic crisis.
The crisis has knocked over 8 percent off Spain's blue-chip IBEX 35 index over the past year. Big losses earlier this year led Spain, along with other European countries, to prohibit short-selling in July.
