SGX automates market surveillance

11 December 2001

Singapore Exchange (SGX) has installed a real-time automated market surveillance system to monitor trading behaviour patterns within its securities market.

The new 'Smarts' system automatically detects and alerts the exchange of irregular market behaviour such as unusual price movements or trading volumes. The system also enables SGX to replay historical trading, allowing investigators to identify the sequence of orders, quotes or trades that gave rise to a particular situation.

Alan Shaw, executive vice president and head of risk management and regulation, SGX says: "The system enhances our existing capabilities to provide a fair and efficient trading environment with the highest standards of integrity."
