Referenced Symbols

The London Stock Exchange on Friday announced a ban on short selling -- or a bet of shares falling -- of Italian and Spanish stocks listed on that exchange, while Borsa Italiana and Spain's CNMV enacted a similar ban on stocks in those countries. It comes after a brutal selloff for global equities, and the worst day since the Black Monday fall of 1987 for the Stoxx Europe 600 index. The FTSE MIB Italy index I945, -1.09% slid 15% on Thursday, while the Spain IBEX 35 index IBEX, -3.30% dropped 14%. Those indexes were up nearly 5% and 3.7%, respectively on Friday.
