  1. Is this ban on shorting financials temporary. If so how long.

    From what I understand, 10 days and then they have to option to extend it for another 20 or 30 days or something like that.

    What a ridiculous government biased action! This is completely against free market philosophy. The US government is becoming a dictator. "I want it goes up, so don't SELL, but BUY!".

    A ban on short without prior borrowing makes sense, but not a complete ban like that.
