The all-shorts ban of course led to a surge as everyone needed to cover their bets, leading to a supply crunch; the naked short ban is more like a non-confidence vote that warns people to stay away from the market or get out while you can. I think that might account for it, but who knows… maybe it was just someone pissed off their trip to Thailand is likely off :p

Also wanted to say what the hell kind of keyboards are over in UK that ANYONE could come up with this fat finger nonsense and believe it! My bottom row looks like this: Z-X-C-V-B-N-M… that’s one hell of a fat finger to miss by 2 keys or not at least get an N in there to boot. I suggest a big head-smack is due to the next person who says anything so idiotic
