  1. Just heard that some brokers wont allow naked short trades anymore in spanish, italian, french futures. This might also affect Eurostoxx Futures. This is because its unclear wether the short ban also applies to futures. Because for every long futures contract there is a short futures the squeeze could be immense if all shorts have to cover ..... anybody that can confirm this news ?
