SGX CIRCUIT BREAKER AND ERROR TRADE POLICY FAQ

SGX introduced circuit breakers as an additional market safeguard on 24 February 2014.

With circuit breakers, investors will have time to assimilate incoming information and make informed choices during periods of high market volatility. The intention is to provide investors with time to make considered decisions when price movements are sharp.

SGX also launched a revised error trade policy on the same day. The new error trade policy includes the introduction of a no-cancellation price range and will provide greater certainty to market participants as to the validity of trades executed on SGX.
