PSE proposes enhancements to trading rules


The Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) has posted for public comments its proposed revisions to its trading rules to enhance risk management processes  and in preparation for new order types that may be introduced after the adoption of the new trading platform PSETrade XTS.  This new trading system is developed by NASDAQ OMX, a global exchange technology solutions provider, and shall be rolled out in May 2015.
“Our migration to the NASDAQ X-Stream trading engine has given us an opportunity to benchmark our rules against global practices.  We are not introducing major changes considering the adjustments that the stakeholders will have to undertake as we move to PSETrade XTS.  We believe, however, that we now have this chance to introduce some items in line with our overall goal of adopting best practices in trading,” said PSE President and CEO Hans B. Sicat.
Among the proposed changes include enhancements to risk-related parameters pertaining to managing error accounts and instituting controls in preparation for the introduction of new order types such as market orders.  
“The target is to have the rules in place in time for the implementation of PSETrade XTS in May next year.  The preparations are progressing following our roll-out schedule and we remain confident on meeting our target launch date,” Mr. Sicat added.

After the comment period, the PSE shall be consolidating any changes that may be made and shall submit them to the Securities and Exchange Commission for their regulatory approval.

The proposed trading rules may be accessed at the PSE website at  Comments on the rules will be accepted up to November 21, 2014 and can be submitted to Ms. Sandra Runas at
