SEC Extends Short-Sale Ban as Congress Weighs Bailout (Update1)
Oct. 1 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission will extend a ban on short-sales of financial stocks, leaving in place the prohibition on bets companies' shares will fall until Congress approves a $700 billion economic bailout.
The restriction will expire three days after lawmakers give Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson authority to buy illiquid assets that are burdening banks and other financial firms, the SEC said today in a statement. The short-sale prohibition will end no later than Oct. 17 if Congress rejects the legislation.
