Short-selling ban is one-off rather than longer-term measure: French regulator

PARIS (Reuters) - Robert Ophele, the head of France’s AMF financial markets regulator, told a parliamentary hearing on Thursday that a French short-selling ban was a one-off measure rather than a longer-term or more permanent measure.

Last month, the AMF extended a ban on net short selling positions until May 18 due to the coronavirus outbreak’s impact on the economy and financial markets.
