Notification must be made of any position attaining 0.2% of the issued share capital, and of every subsequent 0.1% above this threshold.
Currently there is a requirement in Europe that net short-sell positions of more than 0.2 percent must be notified to the national market supervisor. It has now been decided at ESMA level that this notification threshold will be lowered to 0.1% as of March 16, 2020. This measure takes immediate effect and applies for a term of three months, which may be extended if necessary.
Notifications starting at 0.5% and every subsequent 0.1% above this threshold will be made public via the short selling register. Notification must also be made of net short positions in sovereign debts that exceed or fall below specific threshold values, but these notifications will not be made public.
