SGX to offer continuous all-day trading by 2nd quarter of 2011
18 February 2011 – Singapore Exchange (SGX) today said it is seeking regulatory approval to
offer non-stop trading from 9.00am to 5.00pm for its securities market by the second quarter of
the year, instead of 1 March. This follows further consultation with market participants.
The later start date will help assure complete readiness of all participants.
The start of continuous trading of securities will bring Singapore in line with developed
international markets at a time of increasing globalisation and competition. Trading hours in
Singapore will overlap more with those of key centres in Tokyo, China and India, thereby
increasing opportunities for investors participating in various markets.
A non-stop trading session also will remove the additional risks investors face when they are
unable to act due to a gap in the trading day.
