Singapore MAS to require investors to report short positions on SGX stocks

SINGAPORE, May 28 (Reuters) - Singapore’s central bank said on Monday it will require investors to report short positions and short sell orders in securities listed on the Singapore Exchange effective Oct. 1 to improve transparency on such activities.

Under the new rules, investors with short positions above the threshold of the lower of 0.2 percent of total issued shares or S$2 million ($1.49 million) will have to report the positions to the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS).
