South Korea bans short selling for six months

The Financial Services Commission decided to impose a ban on stock short-selling in the KOSPI, KOSDAQ and KONEX markets for a period of six months from March 16 to September 15.

During the six-month period, the current limits on stock buybacks will also be lifted for listed companies as shown below. The Korea Exchange may ease the rules upon approval from the FSC.

In order to prevent excessive offsetting trading by stock companies, the minimum requirement for collateral coverage ratio for stock companies will be lifted.
