Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad (“Bursa Malaysia” or “the Exchange”) has introduced new trading features, providing alternatives for market participants to efficiently execute a greater variety of trading strategies.
The new and enhanced trading features are:
- Good-Till-Cancel – a new order validity that remains in the order book until it expires after 30 calendar days, or is cancelled by the investor or withdrawn by the Exchange before expiry
- Stop Market and Stop Limit – enhanced to allow investors to submit these order types with pairing of Day, Good-Till-Date or Good-Till-Cancel validity. These enhancements also allow Stop Orders to be submitted during Pre-Opening and Pre-Closing phases.
Chief Executive Officer of Bursa Malaysia, Datuk Seri Tajuddin Atan said:
Enhancements of these market mechanisms will provide investors greater flexibility in managing their orders, enabling refinement of trading and risk management strategies. The expansion of order types and validity is timely, considering the growing sophistication of market participants.
The Exchange will continue to undertake initiatives to provide a more efficient and facilitative market framework, complementing our efforts of making available a greater breadth of investment product offerings. Though seemingly incremental in isolation, these initiatives will collectively move us towards our vision of being the region’s leading marketplace. As Bursa Malaysia becomes one of the leading centers for trading in the region, the Exchange will continue to extract further value from our trading engine to broaden trading opportunities for market participants,” Datuk Seri Tajuddin concluded.
