Banning short-selling of shares gives the impression of responding decisively to events without achieving any useful result, the World Federation of Exchanges (WFE) said on Monday. In an unusually blunt statement, the global umbrella group for exchanges and clearing houses said bourses already have safeguards like circuit breakers to slow markets during bouts of extreme volatility. Several European Union countries, including Spain, Italy, France and Belgium have banned traders borrowing a company stock with a view to selling it, hoping to buy it back later at a lower price and pocket the difference, a practice that critics say can exacerbate market moves amid panic selling.
U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has sparked a global debate by suggesting New York's trading day could be shortened for a time to help calm stock markets rocked by coronavirus. Greece shut its stock market for nearly five weeks in 2015 at the height of its debt crisis.
Closing stock exchanges due to the coronavirus epidemic would not change the underlying cause of market volatility and could trigger defaults, the Federation of European Securities Exchanges (FESE) said on Tuesday. "European exchanges will and should continue to remain open at all times to ensure safety, integrity and fairness in a secure and transparent manner," FESE said in a statement. "Closing the markets would not change the underlying cause of the market volatility, it would remove transparency of investor sentiment and reduce investors access to their money," FESE said.
Shares in Spain's BME, which is the takeover target of Swiss rival market operator SIX, fell on Tuesday after Spain unveiled a plan to block foreign acquisitions of "strategic" companies as part of a package to mitigate the coronavirus crisis. "We are going to block foreign companies from taking control of strategic Spanish companies taking advantage the share price collapse," Spain's Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said on Tuesday, as he announced a 200 billion package to help Spanish companies and workers weather the crisis.
