Singapore, Jan 22, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - Singapore Exchange (SGX) will introduce circuit breakers in the securities market from 24 February as an additional market safeguard.
Circuit breakers will initially apply to Straits Times Index and MSCI Singapore Index component stocks and all those securities priced $0.50 and above. This will also include stapled securities, funds, exchange traded funds, exchange traded notes and extended settlement contracts. These securities account for about 80% of trading on the Singapore stock market.
Circuit breakers will be triggered when a potential trade is matched at a price that is over 10% away from the reference price. The reference price is the last traded price at least five minutes earlier. Once a circuit breaker is triggered, a five-minute cooling-off period follows where trading can only take place within a price band 10% above or below the reference price. Thereafter, trading resumes with a new reference price as established during the cooling-off period.
In addition, SGX will revise its error trade policy effective 24 February. For all securities except bonds, trades will not be cancelled if the transacted price falls within a price range of 20 minimum bid sizes, or 5%, from the last traded price. For structured warrants, the price range will be 20 minimum bid sizes, or 25%, from the last valid price. Trades done outside of the relevant price range are eligible for review by SGX. For bonds, any error trade will be eligible for review.
"The introduction of circuit breakers and the new error trade policy will assure investors of continued safety and transparency even under volatile market conditions. The implementation of these two initiatives will complement our existing safeguards in support of a fair, orderly and transparent market," said Muthukrishnan Ramaswami, President of SGX.
More details on these initiatives can be found at www.sgx.com/tradingsafeguard and www.sgx.com/faqs.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time. Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.
