Finemore, Aboud preparing to resign amid share-trading scandal.

Two directors of the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), Shane Finemore and Russell Aboud, are preparing to resign their positions over dealings by their $1.5 billion hedge fund Manikay Partners, according to The Australian.

The directors will reportedly resign Thursday morning.

The United States Securities and Exchange Commission has fined Manikay for short-selling shares in Citigroup in 2009.

Manikay is among 23 funds caught in the SEC crackdown on short-selling.
