The Securities Commission Malaysia (SC) and Bursa Malaysia Berhad (Bursa Malaysia) will uplift the temporary suspension of Regulated Short Selling (RSS) and have reviewed other market management measures that were introduced this year following heightened market volatility arising from the broader impact of COVID-19.

The RSS will be re-introduced with the following enhanced control measures to ensure stability and maintain investor confidence:

  • The daily gross short position limit for Approved Securities[1] will be temporarily reduced from 3% to 2%; and
  • A new cap of 4% on RSS aggregated net short position will be introduced.
