Greek regulator bans short-selling for two months

The Hellenic Capital Market Commission said Wednesday it has banned the short-selling of shares listed on the Athens Stock Exchange “after taking into account the conditions prevailing in the Greek market.” The ban became effective on Wednesday and will remain in force until June 28. The ban comes after Greek stocks have been falling sharply in recent weeks amid concerns over the country’s debt crisis.
