    China targets short selling to curb volatility

    Wall Street Journal
    China shares ended higher Tuesday after officials announced fresh steps to rein in short selling. Chao Deng writes Chinese regulators are continuing to roll out rescue measures to stem a 27% decline in equities since mid-June. Late Monday, the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges announced revised rules on short selling to curb volatility. But analysts question the effectiveness of the move given the limited scope of short selling in China’s market. Under new rules, short sellers must wait at least one day to cover their positions and pay back loans used to buy shares. Previously, investors could cover their positions within the same day, a practice regulators said added to “abnormal volatility of stock prices".

    Long USDJPY at 124.09 after Lockhart's comments. While not particularly surprising, they highlight that at least some at the FED seem likely to support a September hike.

    They should have slashed the number of seats in Parliament. Not raised them. But that's another story for another day.

    Job's not done but Spain is proving a point

    BloombergView
    Spain may have enjoyed a few strokes of luck these last few years - Greece's travails for example sent a wave of holidaymakers towards its sun-kissed beaches - but the 3.3% growth rate for the year posted today owes much more to smart decision-making and determination, write the Bloomberg editors.
