ANNOUNCEMENT CONTINUOUS ALL – DAY TRADING (CAT)
SGX will introduce continuous all-day trading (CAT) on the SGX-ST securities market from 1 August 2011 to allow you to trade during ‘lunch period’, between 12.30pm and 2.00pm.
During the extended trading hours between 12.30pm and 2.00pm, your Trading Representative (TR) could be away from the desk and news screens. Hence, the Company is providing the following alternative arrangements to cater to your trading needs:
- the use of central dealing desks, where the TRs may channel clients’ orders to these central dealers for order execution;
- the appointment of a back-up TR (‘buddy’) to handle clients' orders;
- the use of mobile technology or hand-held equipment by the TR to execute customers’ orders while he/she is outside the office premises;
- POEMS online internet trading
Please check with your TR on his/her modes of execution during the extended lunch hour trading.
If you require clarifications on the options available to you or your preferred mode of trading, please speak to your TR. For more information on CAT, please visit SGX’s website at www.sgx.com.
Please note that when CAT starts, demand and supply conditions in the market could be less favourable between 12.30pm and 2.00pm than the rest of the trading day. For instance, market volume may be lower as market participants may be unfamiliar with the new hours. This may affect the price and quantity of orders which can be executed during this period.
The level of service from your TRs may also be affected. Relaying your order to the market may take a little longer than usual and response to your questions may be less timely. Investors are encouraged to discuss order execution and management with their TRs, if their TRs are using mobile technology to manage these orders between 12.30pm and 2.00pm.
With CAT, any resting, unmatched orders queuing in the trading system may be matched throughout the day including during the period between 12.30pm to and 2.00pm as the market absorbs news, orders and developments. You are reminded to monitor the status of orders given to your TR and the developments of the market all day, including the period from 12.30pm to 2.00pm.
