(Reuters) - The New York Stock Exchange has added 30 stocks of companies that engage in financial services to a temporary ban on short selling ordered last week by U.S. regulators.
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, besieged by complaints that its list of 799 stocks issued on Friday had missed companies with major financial operations, decided over the weekend to let exchanges add to its list.
The SEC emergency order against short sales in financial stocks will last through October 2. It may be extended further if the agency deems it necessary, but it can only last a total of 30 calendar days.
