3.4.3 In the trading of securities not subject to price limits, the valid price range for auction is determined as follows:
(1) For stocks, the valid price range for opening call auction is within 900% of the last closing price displayed in real time and the valid price range for continuous auction, temporary intraday trading suspension and resumption call auction, and closing call auction is within 10% of the last executed price.
(2) For bonds on their first day of trading, the valid price range for the opening call auction is within 30% of the issue price, and the valid price range for continuous auction and closing call auction is within 10% of the last executed price. On other trading days, the valid price range for the opening call auction is within 10% of the last closing price and the valid price range for continuous auction and closing call auction is within 10% of the last executed price.
(3) For bond collateral repo on a trading day other than the first day, the valid price range for the opening call auction is within 100% of the last closing price and the valid price range for the continuous auction and closing call auction is within 100% of the last executed price. The valid price range for auction on the first trading day of bond collateral repo shall be additionally provided for by the SSE.
The calculated valid price range for auction shall be rounded to the tick size.
Where the absolute value of the difference between the upper or lower limit of the valid price range for the auction of securities not subject to price limits and the last closing prices is lower than the tick size, the last closing price increasing or decreasing by one tick size shall be the valid price range for auction.
3.4.4 In the trading of securities not subject to price limits, a valid order whose quotation price exceeds the valid price range for auction is not accepted instantly by the trading mainframe for auction but lined up till when its quotation price falls within the valid price range with the fluctuation of the stock price.
3.4.5 In case no trade is executed during the call auction for securities not subject to price limits, the valid price range for the continuous trading is adjusted as follows:
(1) If the highest bid price within the valid price range is higher than the last closing price or last executed price displayed in real time, the valid price range is adjusted based on the highest bid price.
(2) If the lowest offer price within the valid price range is lower than the last closing price or last executed price displayed in real time, the valid price range is adjusted based on the lowest offer price.
3.4.6 The SSE may adjust the valid price range for securities auctions where the market so requires.
Section 5 Execution
3.5.1 In the trading of securities by auction, orders are matched and executed under the principles of priority by price and priority by time.
The principle of priority by price: priority is given to an order with a higher bid price over an order with a lower bid price and priority is given to an order with a lower offer price over an order with a higher offer price.
The principle of priority by time: for orders with the same bid price or the same offer price, priority is given to the order first placed. The sequence of orders is determined according to the time when the trading mainframe accepts such orders.
3.5.2 The executed price in the call auction shall be determined according to the following principles:
(1) The price at which the greatest trading volume is generated.
(2) The price which allows all the buy orders with a higher bid price and all the sell orders with a lower offer price to be executed.
(3) The price which allows at least all the buy orders with the same price or all the sell orders with the same price to be executed.
Where there are two or more prices meeting the aforesaid conditions, the price that minimizes the difference between the accumulated number of buy orders above the price and the accumulated number of sell orders below the price is the executed price. If the differences between accumulated numbers of buy orders and sell orders are the same, the price that is closest to the last closing price displayed in real time at the time of opening call auction is the executed price. The price that is closest to the last executed price at the time of intraday and closing call auction is the executed price.
Trades in the call auction shall be all executed at the same price.
3.5.3 The executed price in the continuous auction shall be determined according to the following principles:
(1) If the highest bid price matches the lowest offer price, such a price shall be the executed price.
(2) If the bid price is higher than the real-time lowest offer price displayed in the central orderbook, such lowest offer price shall be the executed price.
(3) If the offer price is lower than the real-time highest bid price displayed in the central orderbook, such highest bid price shall be the executed price.
3.5.4 A trade is executed after a buy order and a sell order are matched and executed by the trading mainframe. A trade executed under these Rules is effective upon execution, and both the buyer and the seller shall accept the trading results and perform their obligations of clearing and settlement.
Where any severe consequences arise from a trade as a result of a force majeure, an accident, unauthorized access to the trading system, or any other reason, the SSE may take appropriate measures or determine the trade as invalid.
Where any trade is apparently unfair, appropriate measures may be taken upon determination by the SSE.
Where any trade violates these Rules and seriously disrupts the normal operation of the securities market, the SSE may declare cancellation of such trade, and any loss incurred therefrom shall be assumed by the trader committing the violation.
3.5.5 The results of trades executed under these Rules shall be the execution data recorded in the trading mainframe.
3.5.6 The clearing and settlement of trading in securities shall be conducted according to the provisions issued by the depository and clearing institution designated by the SZSE.
