MOEX FX Market Innovations, 2020
A new order execution algorithm is introduced on the FX Market from November 23 – Time Weighted Average Price (TWAP)
TWAP Algorithm helps to execute large volumes smoothly by small lumps of money in a series of predefined time periods in the course of the day to prevent large market impact on the Moscow Exchange currency market.
Following a demand of our corporate participants we also introduced a new algorithmic order type e-TWAP (Trade Weighted Average Price) which helps them to execute large volumes smoothly by small lumps of money in a series of predefined time periods in the course of the day to prevent large market impact.
Available instruments: SPOT, SWAP (TODTOM, TOMSPT) and SWAP contracts in the Main Board (CETS mode) and Speedbump (SDBP mode).
TWAP algorithm parameters:
- Execution time: within the main trading session, i.e. from 10:00-23:50 MSK
- The price: market or limit
- Rate: the worst rate (for limit orders)
- The total quantity submitted for execution within TWAP
- Random deviations for times orders are placed and orders quantities (0– no deviation from normal distribution; 1- max spread (±50% from average values))
- Time intervals between the orders:
- Time in the hh:mm:ss format, or
- The number of orders that may be placed in the trading system
Extension of trading time until 12:00 MSK
From September 28, 2020 on FX Market the trading time will be extended from 11:00 to 12:00 in the TOD and swap O/N (TOD/TOM) instruments of currency pairs CNY/RUB, USD/CNY, CHF/RUB, USD/CHF, TRY/RUB, USD/TRY, BYN/RUB, KZT/RUB, USD/KZT (trading time will be from 10:00 to 12:00 GMT+3). The end of trading time for TOD and TOD/TOM instruments for HKD/RUB will not be changed:
|End of trading||Cut-off time||End of trading||Cut-off time|
- The time for participants to enter early settlements at 11:00 (GMT+3) is preserved both for the request for collateral return and standing instructions to return.
- The time for participants to enter early settlements at 12:00 (GMT+3) is added, both for the request for collateral return and standing instructions to return.
- Access to early settlements on request for collateral return in the period from 11:00 to 14:00 (GMT+3) is reduced to the period 12:00 - 14:00 (GMT+3).
