Italian market regulator Consob stated that Italy will  not extend its ban on short selling of financial shares after it expires today.

After European banks hit their lowest levels since the credit crisis of 2008, France, Belgium, Spain and Italy moved to prohibit short selling of financial shares in August in order to stabilize markets.     France,Belgium and Spain ended their bans last week.
