Booked orders refer to the total monetary value of every written client order. It comprises orders involving goods that have already been delivered for sale and have been received up to the time of computation in the relevant financial year, as shown within a booked order statement.

These requests may come in handwritten or digital format. Despite the fact that they often provide identical knowledge, their configuration can vary based on the source of the data. The up and down, as well as the sides of the monitor, may display transactions and purchase information. 

The order ledger is flexible since it is continuously revised across the course of the day. The perpetual book is the name given to it by platforms like Nasdaq. Trades that solely call for implementation at the marketplace at either time are kept segregated. 

Types of booked orders 

The order book keeps track of all submitted orders up until they are delivered. Four various order types which would be reported as entries in a transaction book are available to investors. They consist of the market, limitation, cease-loss, and delayed stop orders. 

  • Market orders are ones that are promptly executed at the moment’s price for the purchase or trade of an investment on the trading platform. 
  • Orders with limitations enable traders to place orders solely at that cost or one that is either greater or lesser than the maximum price they have specified. 
  • Stop-loss purchase: Whenever the security being traded loses money, stop-loss orders serve to mitigate a shareholder’s risk by causing an instant purchase or sale. 
  • Putting a limit order at an amount of money or proportion greater or lesser than the highest or lowest previous low or high is known to be a “trailing stopping order.”  

Example of booked orders 

An instance of an order book includes NASDAQ TotalView. It makes the assertion to be the finest publication on the market in the nation’s capital, if not around the globe. For short-term traders, seasoned investors, and economists, TotalView is an essential repository of knowledge.

    This material is provided by Phillip Capital Management (S) Ltd (“PCM”) for general information only and does not constitute a recommendation, an offer to sell, or a solicitation of any offer to invest in any of the exchange-traded fund (“ETF”) or the unit trust (“Products”) mentioned herein. It does not have any regard to your specific investment objectives, financial situation and any of your particular needs. You should read the Prospectus and the accompanying Product Highlights Sheet (“PHS”) for key features, key risks and other important information of the Products and obtain advice from a financial adviser (“FA“) pursuant to a separate engagement before making a commitment to invest in the Products.

A copy of the Prospectus and PHS are available from PCM, any of its Participating Dealers (“PDs“) for the ETF, or any of its authorised distributors for the unit trust managed by PCM.  

    An ETF is not like a typical unit trust as the units of the ETF (the “Units“) are to be listed and traded like any share on the Singapore Exchange Securities Trading Limited (“SGX-ST”). Listing on the SGX-ST does not guarantee a liquid market for the Units which may be traded at prices above or below its NAV or may be suspended or delisted. Investors may buy or sell the Units on SGX-ST when it is listed. Investors cannot create or redeem Units directly with PCM and have no rights to request PCM to redeem or purchase their Units. Creation and redemption of Units are through PDs if investors are clients of the PDs, who have no obligation to agree to create or redeem Units on behalf of any investor and may impose terms and conditions in connection with such creation or redemption orders. Please refer to the Prospectus of the ETF for more details.  

    Investments are subject to investment risks including the possible loss of the principal amount invested. The purchase of a unit in a fund is not the same as placing your money on deposit with a bank or deposit-taking company. There is no guarantee as to the amount of capital invested or return received. The value of the units and the income accruing to the units may fall or rise. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of the future or likely performance of the Products. There can be no assurance that investment objectives will be achieved.  

    Where applicable, fund(s) may invest in financial derivatives and/or participate in securities lending and repurchase transactions for the purpose of hedging and/or efficient portfolio management, subject to the relevant regulatory requirements. PCM reserves the discretion to determine if currency exposure should be hedged actively, passively or not at all, in the best interest of the Products.  

    The regular dividend distributions, out of either income and/or capital, are not guaranteed and subject to PCM’s discretion. Past payout yields and payments do not represent future payout yields and payments. Such dividend distributions will reduce the available capital for reinvestment and may result in an immediate decrease in the net asset value (“NAV”) of the Products.
