More on market for buyers only

Ankit Sharma sent me detailed short selling restrictions from
various countries around the world. I have summarized the picture as
follows:

  • Short selling (naked or covered) prohibited in all stocks:
    Australia
  • Naked short selling prohibited in all stocks: Switzerland
  • Short selling (naked or covered) prohibited in key financial
    stocks: UK, US, Canada, Ireland
  • Naked shorting prohibited in key financial stocks: Belgium,
    France, Germany, Luxembourg, Netherlands

Needless to say, this is a crude summary which glosses over
exemptions and a lot of fine print.
