What is Trade At Close Period? (applicable to SGX market only)

The 10-minute-long TAC session will immediately follow the closing auction routine and allows participants to execute orders at the Closing Auction Price (CAP) set during the closing auction routine. The TAC session will occur at 5.06pm to 5.16pm on a regular trading day and from 12.06pm to 12.16pm if the market is trading for half a day.

During the TAC session, trades can only occur at a fixed price, that is CAP established by SGX during the “Non-Cancel Last” session. The CAP will be displayed on our platform.

If there is no closing auction price established during Non-Cancel Last session for the counter, then all the order entries will be rejected and there will be no order matching during TAC session on that business day for that counter.

All unfilled long dated orders (GTD/GTM) during TAC, will be carried over to the following trading day.

Limit orders can only be entered at the closing auction price. Order amendments and cancellation is allowed during TAC.

Should SGX invalidate a closing auction price for a security, trades done during the relevant TAC phase based on that price will also be cancelled.

For more information on TAC, please refer to SGX FAQ and News Release.

Examples
Closing Auction Price (provided by SGX) = $1.30
Limit Order Price = $1.30
Expected result: Order accepted by SGX

Closing Auction Price (provided by SGX) = $1.30
Limit Order Price = $1.40
Expected result: Order rejected by SGX

Closing Auction Price (provided by SGX) = Price Unavailable (-)
Limit Order Price = $1.40

What is the difference between market order, limit order, at-auction order, at-auction limit order, enhanced limit order and special limit order?

Market Order:
When the market is opened, a market order will be executed at the best bid or ask price available. If a market order is placed when the market is closed, it will be executed at the bid or ask price when the market opens. A market order guarantees an execution but does not guarantee a price. A market order could be executed at a higher or lower price than what was quoted to you. Please note that market orders are not allowed for Hong Kong, United Kingdom, Australia and Japan trading.

Singapore Market: The Market Order type can only be entered during trading hours, from 08:30 - 17:04

Limit Order:
When you place a limit order, you are stating the price at which you wish to buy or sell a stock. If that price is not met, your order will not be executed. A limit order guarantees a price but does not guarantee an execution. A limit order can be executed at a better price than the limit price you set.

Orders on the Hong Kong Market

Limit Order:
A Limit order allows an order to be matched only at a specified price. A sell limit order cannot be below the current bid price whereas a buy limit order cannot be above the current ask price. Any unmatched quantity will be placed in the price queue.

Enhanced Limit Order (ELO) and Special Limit Order (SLO) are the two order types available to Hong Kong trading:

At-auction Order:
An at-auction order is a market order without a specified price. It is entered for execution at the final Indicative Equilibrium Price (IEP). It enjoys a higher auction matching priority than an at-auction limit order and will be matched in time priority at the final IEP. Any outstanding at-auction orders after the end of the pre-opening session will be cancelled before the commencement of the continuous trading session.

At-auction Limit Order:
An at-auction limit order is a limit order with a specified price. After order matching:

  • Unfilled at-auction limit orders in the pre-opening session with input price not deviating nine times or more from the prevailing nominal price will be converted to limit orders at the input price and carried forward to the continuous trading session

 

Enhanced Limit Order (ELO):
An ELO is similar to a Limit order. The difference between the two is that an ELO allows an order to be matched up to 10 price queues at one time. A buy order input price can be made at a price of 9 spreads above the current ask price and a sell order input price can be made at a price of 9 spreads below the current bid price. Any unfilled quantity of an ELO after matching will be converted into a Limit Order and placed in the price queue at the order input price

Special Limit Order (SLO):
A SLO allows an order to be matched up to 10 price queues, 9 spreads away, at one time as long as the traded price is better than the input price. There are no price restrictions on a SLO. However, the buy order input price must be at or above the best ask price, whereas the sell order input price must be at or below the best bid price. Any unfilled quantity of an SLO after matching will be cancelled.

More information about ELO and SLO is available on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (HKEX) web site.

What is an 'All Or None' (AON) order?

'AON' is a type of restricted order where the entire order must be filled at one time or nothing will be filled at all. If you do not specify your order as 'All Or None' when placing a limit order, there is a possibility that your order will be filled partially. Full commission fees and charges apply for each partial fill, except those transacted within the same business day. Please note that AON feature will only be available if the quantity is over 100 units.

What is a Good for Day order?

A Good for Day order is a limit order good for that business day only. If the order is not filled by the end of the trading day, the order will expire. A Good for Day order placed after the market is closed is good for the next business day, unless it is placed specifically for after-hours trading.

What is a Good till Date order?

A Good till Date order is a limit order good until a date of expiry after the order is placed. The date of expiry can be indicated up to a maximum of 30 calendar days. At the close of the market on the expiry day, any remaining quantity of the order that is not filled will be cancelled. Good till Date order is only applicable for the Singapore, U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia and Japan markets. (Singapore account holders: Applicable for buy and sell orders and cash account only, in Singapore market.)

What is a Good till Max order?

A Good till Max order is a limit order similar to Good till Date order. Order will automatically be good for the next 30 calendar days after the order is placed, and cancelled on the morning following the 30th day, unless order is fully filled, specifically cancelled, instrument de-listed, or purged for corporate actions. Good till Max orders are available in the Singapore market only. (Singapore account holders: Applicable for SGX buy and sell orders and for cash account only)

What is a Fill or Kill order?

A market Fill or Kill (FOK) order is only applicable to the Singapore market. The entire quantity placed must be matched in full or the order will be cancelled. A market FOK order can only be entered during continuous trading hours from 09:00 – 12:00 and 13:00 – 17:04.

What is a Fill and Kill order?

A market Fill and Kill (FAK) order is only applicable to the Singapore market. Any portion of a market FAK order will be matched as soon as the order is placed and the remaining order will be cancelled. A market FAK order can only be entered during trading hours from 08:30 – 17:04

Risks associated with using market orders
Please take note that by placing a market FAK order during SGX Opening Routine, Mid-Day Break or Closing Routine, the order will be participating in Matching during Non-Cancel Phase.
Orders that can be matched are matched at a single price computed based on SGX Algorithm.

A buy order can be filled at a much higher price than intended, or a sell order can be filled at a much lower price than intended. Using market orders during a volatile market is not recommended as there is a higher probability that the prices will change quickly. Hence, the incidence of ‘slippage’ is higher in fast-moving markets or for illiquid securities with thin order book and wide bid-ask spread. The order may be split across multiple investors on the other side of the transaction, resulting in different prices for the order.

For Singapore market, under what circumstances could my order be rejected?

There are a number of reasons your order could be rejected and the common ones are listed here:

  1. The limit price of your order is more than the stated max bids away from the current bid/ask prices and the forced order option was not checked.
  2. The trading limit for your account has been exceeded.
  3. The stock you selected to purchase using CPF funds is not CPF-approved.
  4. The stock you selected has been suspended.
  5. The stock you selected has been delisted.
  6. The SGX has encountered technical problems.
  7. The system has encountered technical problems - such as outages, glitches and other delays.
  8. The limit price of your order is not the same as the closing auction price during Trade At Close session.

If your order is rejected despite having checked and corrected any possible errors, please contact our Investment Service Centre at (65) 6327 2288 in Singapore or (852) 2902 3888 in Hong Kong.

Can I amalgamate (combine) the SGX orders made through www.dbsvonline.com?

Our online brokerage service automatically amalgamates trades when the trades are of the same stock, currency, settlement mode and trade date as well as the same action (buy or sell). For foreign currency settlement, if orders were placed at different times of the trade day, different foreign exchange rates may be applied for each trade. In this case, amalgamation will not be automatic. If you wish to amalgamate such orders, please contact our Investment Services Centre at (65) 6327 2288 by (Trade Date +1) for cash trades, and on the Trade Date for CPF trades.

Can I place Odd Lot orders via the internet?

Please note that trading in odd lot shares will be based on the prevailing odd lot market price which may be less favourable than trading in the normal market.

What are the commission charges for trading in Odd Lot/Unit Share Market?
