Ja, ist so..
In welchem Land ist dein Broker? In Frankreich scheint es in der Tat ein Short-Selling Verbot, sogar auf Index-Futures zu geben. Überall sonst ist es soweit ich weiss ok. Hier ist das Eurex-Statement vom 18. Aug:

Action required High Priority
Last week a number of national supervisory authorities in Europe released short
selling bans which differ from one another both in content and scope of
application. These bans also deviate, in some parts substantially, from existing
German regulations. Since July 2010, a ban for uncovered short selling has been
in place in Germany that applies to stocks and debt securities of European
governments and to uncovered CDS on government bonds issued in the euro zone.
As a matter of principle, products traded at Eurex are only subject to German
law. However, it is possible that trades conducted at Eurex are affected by
rulings of foreign regulators. We therefore recommend that each Trading Member
reviews and assesses the released short selling bans independent of the German
Currently there is a high level of uncertainty regarding the short selling
ban’s specific scope of application. The Management Boards of the Eurex
Exchanges are thoroughly examining the precise application of the short
selling bans and are discussing these with the respective regulators.
In the meanwhile, we refer to the trades exempted from short selling bans in
the national regulators’ publications. As an example, please refer to the
following question and answer list published by the French regulator:
Newedge spricht auch nur vom AMF (Franz. Regulator):
The AMF adjusts its position regarding the rolling forward of net short positions taken before the publication of its Decision of 11 August 2011
Given the existing practical difficulties and time constraints, the AMF has adjusted the position it had established before today’s press release with regard to the implementation of the ban on the taking of net short positions in relation to pre-existing positions built through expiring derivatives. As a result thereof, the AMF admits that investors holding a net short position in relation to one of the securities concerned through expiring derivatives are allowed to roll forward their position, even if such a rolling results in the creation of a net short position with a further expiry date, provided that the net short position so created does not exceed the one held previously.
Point 3 of the Frequently Asked Questions as published on the AMF website was adjusted accordingly.
Hört sich so an, als gäbe is in FR, oder auch für Firmen, die indirekt unter der Fuchtel der AMF stehen, in der Tat ein Short-Selling Verbot für Index-Futures mit franz. Banken als Komponenten im Underlying.
