Short selling regulation updates by ESMA

12 April 2013  |  1736 views  |  0

The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has published the responses received to its consultation on short selling and certain aspects of credit default swaps.  ESMA received 35 responses across all sectors including from exchanges and trade associations together with a number of regulated firms.  ESMA will now publish its advice to the European Commission by 31 May.  The Commission is due to present a Report to the Parliament and the Council by 30 June.

 

The website has also been updated to clarify the rights of public access  to certain types of information:

  • significant net short position notification thresholds for each sovereign issuer;
  • links to central websites operated by competent authorities where the public disclosure of net short positions are posted;
  • the list of shares for which the principal trading venue is located in the third country;
  • a list of market makers and authorised primary dealers; and
  • a list of existing penalties and administrative measures applicable in Member States.
