Reporting of Large Short Positions and Orders

The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) will require investors to report their short positions and short sell orders in securities listed on the Singapore Exchange (SGX), with effect from 1 October 2018.

” Monetary Authority of Singapore Requires Reporting of Large Short Positions and Orders “

Under the new rules, a short position has to be reported if it reaches or exceeds either S$2 million or 0.2% of total issued shares / units.  Investors will have to report through a new online portal called the Short Position Reporting System (SPRS).  MAS will also publish the total short positions of each security every Wednesday (identities of short sellers will not be disclosed).  Any short position reports made before 1 October 2018 will not be published.

The existing SGX’s trading rules already require securities brokers and banks to flag all investor short sell orders to the exchange.  Investors are required to inform their brokers when they submit short sell orders. SGX will also continue to consolidate the short sell orders of each security and publish the information daily.
