    Going ahead, JATS will display information on IEP and IEV during the pre-opening and pre-closing sessions. The Amended Rules define IEP as the indicated transaction price, calculated using the JATS price formation algorithm. IEV is defined as indicated transaction volume, using the JATS price formation algorithm. This is a new provision that will enter into effect on 26 July 2021.

     

  7. Market Orders

 

The Amended Rules introduce a new alternative mechanism for traders’ orders. Previously, a trader (via a securities custodian/broker) could only submit a limit order where the order was limited by the number of shares and a price that had been determined by the trader. Under the Amended Rules, a trader may now submit an order to the custodian/broker based on transaction volume (market order). The market order mechanism will be available in the regular market (except during the pre-closing session) and the cash market starting from 26 July 2021
