Bank law may hurt stock market

A new Banking Law approved at the beginning of the month may prevent banks from trading in stocks and bonds as of the new year. Stock market officials have said they are worried the law may hurt the Bratislava bourse, where banks are main players.

The bourse has historically been plagued by low trading volumes and poor liquidity. Its market capitalisation is one of the lowest in central Europe.
