    Happening from next monday to July 5th.

    Anyone familiar with the french stock market and this suspension ?? What are the consequences ???

    From what i understand all shorts have to cover by tomorrow market close, and no shorts will be allowed until July 5th.

    Any idea of the implications ? how much can that push CA up, if at all ??

    I have more questions about technical and tax details following the split of CA into CA and DIA in the form of an exceptional dividend, if some of you have a clue of what will happen.

    Precisely will there be a witholding tax of 25% on the value of DIA stocks applied to all non french residents ? Plus a 25% witholding tax on the 1.05euros standard dividend ?? I'm long CA quite a bit but will exit before that date if that's the case.
