  • 03. WHAT ARE PRE-OPEN, CONTINUOUS TRADING, CLOSING AUCTION SESSION PERIODS?

    Pre-open
    The pre-opening session is introduced to determine a fair opening price.

    During the pre-opening session, orders are accumulated over a certain period of time and matched at the pre-defined order matching period. Orders are matched in order type, price and time priority (at-auction orders carry a higher matching priority) at the final Indicative Equilibrium Price (IEP).

    The trading system only accepts at-auction orders and at-auction limit orders. The price of an order input into the trading system must not deviate nine times or more from the previous closing price or the nominal price (as the case may be), if available, or is one-ninth or less of that price. The maximum order size is 3,000 board lots per order.

    During the order input period, only at-auction orders and at-auction limit orders are accepted. Orders are accumulated and updated in the trading system continuously and can be cancelled.

    During the pre-order matching period, only at-auction orders are accepted and cancellation of orders in the system will not take place. It can avoid significant changes in IEP and adjust the IEP to a fair market price.

    During the order matching period, no input and cancellation of orders are allowed in the trading system. The final IEP of a security is determined during this period. Orders will be matched in order type (at-auction order first), price and time priority at the final IEP.

    A two-stage price limit mechanism is applied to control the price of at-auction limit orders (i.e. at-auction orders and manual transactions are not subject to these price limits) which are input during the POS.

    Stage 2 Lower Price Limit = the lower of the highest bid price and the lowest ask price recorded at the end of the Order Input Period at
    9:15 am

    • Buy Orders: Previous Close - 15% ≤ Order Price ≤ Stage 2 Upper Limit
    • Sell Orders: Previous Close + 15% ≥ Order Price ≥ Stage 2 Lower Limit

    IEP will only be formed within the range of the highest bid price and lowest ask price recorded at the end of Order Input Period at 9:15 am

    During the blocking period, orders cannot be routed into HKEx's trading system by brokers until the start of the continuous trading session at 9:30 am.

    Continuous Trading
    The continuous trading session covers periods from 9:30 am to 12:00 noon and 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm in each trading day. During the continuous trading session, the trading system will match orders input into the system in price priority based on the order they are received. An order entered into the system at an earlier time must be executed in full before an order at the same price entered at a later time can be executed.

    During the continuous trading session, the system accepts Limit Orders, Enhanced Limit Orders and Special Limit Orders only, with an option for an All-or-Nothing Qualifier that confines the order to be either executed immediately in full or rejected, without being written into the central order book.

    Further, the order price input into the trading system (i) must not deviate nine times or more from the nominal price, if available, or is one-ninth or less of that price and (ii) must follow the quotation rules unless the restriction is waived. In addition, the maximum order size is 3,000 board lots.

    Closing Auction Session (CAS)
    The closing auction session allows trades to be executed at the closing price. During the closing auction, clients may submit buy and sell orders, with the price that most volume can be traded at forming the closing price. All orders will then be executed at that price.

    During the reference price fixing period, a reference price, which sets the allowable price limit of the CAS, is calculated for each CAS security. The reference price is determined by taking the median of 5 nominal prices in the last minute of the Continuous Trading Session (CTS) and the system will take 5 snapshots on the nominal prices at 15-seconds interval starting from 15:59:00. New and cancellation of orders are not allowed during this period.
    After the reference prices have been determined, the system will disseminate the reference prices and price limits to the market. Orders outstanding at the end of the preceding CTS will be automatically carried forward to the CAS and treated as at-auction limit orders except that the system will cancel those aggressive orders with prices outside the permissible price limit.

    During the order input period, only at-auction orders and at-auction limit orders within the 5 per cent price limit can be entered on CAS securities. Outstanding orders can also be cancelled during this period.

    During the no cancellation period, at-auction orders and at-auction limit orders can be entered. Prices of new at-auction limit orders must be between the lowest ask and highest bid recorded at the end of order input period (i.e. recorded at 16:06), and no orders can be cancelled.

    During the random closing period, the order rules from the no cancellation period apply and the market closes randomly within two minutes.

    Odd lot trading is available in the HK Market and you may contact your Trading Representative to place order. Odd lot trading is however, not accepted by our Online Trading platform.

  • 10. What are the Order Types available?

    At-Auction Limit Order
    At-Auction Limit Order is a limit order with a specific price. An at-auction limit order with a specified price at or more competitive than the final IEP (in case of buying, the specified price is equal to or higher than the final IEP, or in case of selling, the specified price is equal to or lower than the final IEP) may be matched at the final IEP subject to availability of eligible matching order on the opposite side. An at-auction limit order will be matched in price and time priority at the final IEP. No at-auction limit order will be matched at a price worse than the final IEP.

    Any outstanding at-auction limit orders at the end of the Pre-opening Session will be carried forward to the Continuous Trading Session and treated as limit orders provided that the specified price of that at-auction limit order does not deviate 9 times or more from the nominal price. Such orders will be put in the price queue of the input price.

    Limit Order
    A Limit Order will allow matching only at the specified price. The sell order input price cannot be made at a price below the best bid price, if available whereas the buy order input price cannot be made at a price above the best ask price, if available. Any outstanding limit order will be put in the price queue of the input price.

    Please note that for Limit orders in HKSE, a Buy price above the best Ask, or a Sell price below the best Bid, will result in a rejected order. You are advised to change your price accordingly or to use an Enhanced Limit Order.

    Enhanced Limit Order
    An enhanced limit order will allow matching of up to 10 price queues (i.e. the best price queue and up to the 10th queue at 9 spreads away) at a time provided that the traded price is not worse than the input price. The sell order input price cannot be made at a price of 10 spreads (or more) below the current bid price whereas the buy order input price cannot be made at a price of 10 spreads (or more) above the current ask price. Any outstanding enhanced limit order will be treated as a limit order and put in the price queue of the input price.

    Comparison of Limit Order and Enhanced Limit Order
    The following example illustrates the effect on the central order book if a sell order of 600,000 shares of ABC stock is input at different selling prices and with different order types:

    Order Queue for ABC Stock (For illustration only)
    Price Volume ('000) Price Volume ('000)
    Bid Ask
    $1.00 100 $1.01 80
    $0.99 90 $1.02 70
    $0.98 60 $1.03 90
    $0.97 ~ $1.04 50
    $0.96 80 $1.05 30
    $0.95 20 $1.06 20
    $0.94 30 $1.07 30
    $0.93 50 $1.08 50
    $0.92 ~ $1.09 60
    $0.91 70 $1.10 30

    For example, if selling 600,000 shares of ABC stock at the following illustrated prices Case 1
