Processing Method
  • When Ⅵ is triggered, the orders are received for 2 minutes for periodic call auction and then executed.
    (If Ⅵ occurs at the time of continuous auction, the session would be converted to periodic call auction, and for periodic call auction, the time would be extended)
  • Priority principle for price and time is applicable.
Applied session
  • Dynamic Ⅵ: continuous auction, closing auction, off-hour periodic call auction
  • Static Ⅵ: continuous auction, periodic call auction at market opening and closing
Exceptions
  • Issues scheduled to be delisted, short-term overheated issue
Avoidance of overlapping application

In case where the VIs overlap with other price stabilization facility, only one is applied in principle for the investors’ convenience.

  1. Circuit Breakers (CB)
    At the time of CB triggering, other price stabilization is cancelled
  2. Price stabilization facility by issue
    When a periodic call auction is conducted by a triggered VI, another VI is not applied.
