With countries putting a temporary ban on short selling, markets are moving higher very rapidly, especially the financials.
Early morning trade on some of the US Financials see them up 40%.
It is possible that our Financials with have a big jump come Monday.
Does this however leave us with a vacuum that will quickly be eroded once short selling is allowed again? or will the ban be for such a considerable time, that they will wait for the credit crunch to be over before removing the ban?
