Media reports: Indonesia, Taiwan ease short selling bans

Indonesia’s financial services authority will scrap pandemic-era trading restrictions at the end of March, including on trading hours and short-selling, according to Reuters.

In another development, Bloomberg reported that Taiwan’s financial regulator has removed stock short-selling restrictions that were put in place to curb market declines during a turbulent period in the final quarter of 2022. The regulator eased the limit on the volume of intraday securities lending orders to 30% of the average daily trading volume over the previous 30 trading days, from 10% previously, and the minimum short-sale margin requirements of securities are lowered to 90% from 120%, reducing the costs for bearish investors.
