Business - China stock exchanges step up crackdown on short-selling

By Nathaniel Taplin and Saikat Chatterjee SHANGHAI/HONG KONG (Reuters) - China stepped up its crackdown on short-selling of shares on Tuesday, unveiling rules that make it harder for speculators to profit from hourly price changes, as some of the nation`s major brokerages suspended their short-selling businesses.

On Tuesday, as the markets regained ground, major brokerages Citic Securities and Huatai Securities said they would temporarily halt their short-selling services.
