Düsseldorf The German stock market has already fallen a lot this year, but professional investors obviously see further price risks: The number of reportable bets on falling prices fell only slightly from the year’s high – from 210 to 191. This is shown by an evaluation of data from the Federal Gazette, where the Short bets made by professional investors are published.

Although the bets have been reduced at 44 of the 160 companies from the Dax, MDax and SDax since the beginning of July, they have been increased at 29.
