During this session, the system will accept only ‘match at closing price’ order. This type of orders and all executable pending orders shall be executed in this Session at closing price. If any ‘match at closing price’ order is not executed in whole or in part, it will be removed from the system automatically and all other pending orders except the expired ones shall be carried forward to the following Trading Day.
During this session the system will provide access to trading members to make enquiries, verify, and down load the daily transaction details.
The CEO in Committee, a Committee comprising of the CEO, the Company Secretary of CSE and the relevant Departmental Heads of CSE may extend, curtail or change the trading hours, including the session timings if the situation warrants so and such changes will be intimated to the members and others concerned by broadcast through the CSE trading network.

7. The various types of orders may be as follows:
A Limit Order is the order in which the buying price or selling price for a certain quantity of particular security is specified. If the full quantity of the order is not executed immediately then the unfilled part of a limit order is stored in the order book of the system until it is matched or its duration expires. A member may have multiple orders for the same security at the same time. Limit Order will be in the following categories.
Only one of the above market order types shall be applicable for a single market order. The member shall choose the market order type when entering the order itself.
Market Order is an order to buy or sell a certain quantity of particular security at the best price or prices prevailing in the market at that point of time.
Market Orders will be in the following categories.
Market order protection is a protection applied to market orders to ensure that these are not executed at undesired prices. The market order protection will ensure that the trade price for market orders shall be within a certain price band (depending on the market order protection value). The market order protection value (which will be supplied by the member, when the market order is entered) will be an absolute money value, as appropriate. For a market buy order it will be relative to the BBO offer price and for a market sell order it would be relative to the BBO bid price.
A Drip Feed Order is an order in which the member has the option to specify a replenish quantity along with the total order quantity. Only the replenish quantity is revealed to the market. The quantity gets replenished only when the previous quantity has got traded and every time the quantity gets replenished, the visible quantity gets a new time stamp. The system will treat the drip feed order as multiple limit orders.
A Stop Loss Order allows the member to place an order which gets activated only when the market price of the relevant security reaches or crosses trigger price. Until then the order is maintained in a separate book which shall not be a part of the mainstream matching process. As soon as the BBO reaches the trigger price, the Stop Loss order is converted to a Limit order at the trigger price plus/minus the Protection Value (supplied from the MWS). In case of Buy order the limit price will be equal to Order Rate plus Protection Value and in case of Sell order the limit price will be equal to Order Rate less Protection Value.
A stop loss order can be modified or deleted until it is not converted to a limit order.[Top]
A ‘Match at Closing Price’ Order allows the Member to specify order to be executed at Closing Price.
Members shall be allowed to carry out spot order on CSE system arising out of closure of book or closure of the renunciation period of listed Companies.
A spot order is traded against another spot order only.
Any share quantity, which is not a market lot or multiple of market lots shall be called Odd Lot. While matching the system would match orders only if the quantity (odd) of the order is fully satisfied by one of the opposite order.
Bulk lot orders are multiple of market lot orders which contain multiple number of certificates. This type of order automatically carries the ‘all or none’ condition. Each of the Bulk lot order shall match with equal quantity and best price.
The minimum amount for a bid of bulk lot for a certain security shall be Tk 0.5 ( point five) million at market price unless otherwise fixed by the Board time to time with the approval of the SEC.
Big lots are multiple of market lots inscribed in one single certificate. This type of order automatically carries the ‘all or none’ condition. Each of the big lot order shall match with equal quantity and equal or better price.
8. Provided however that all bid for Odd lot, Bulk lot and Big lot shall be entered in the system stating quantity and name of the security with price per share. The bid shall be accepted in the system during the continuous trading session only. The duration of these orders will be same as applicable for limit orders.
Spot order, Odd lot order, Bulk order, Big Lot order and Auction Order will not be considered for BBO formation and closing price calculation .This type of trade will not also affect the calculation of average price, high and low price, last traded price and quantity and all share price index for the securities.
A transaction charge shall be charged and collected by CSE from the members concerned upon execution of all orders as specified by the CSE.
The member shall enter at least single market lot or multiple thereof except the Odd Lot.
An order that passes the validation checks will be accepted by the Exchange system and will be forwarded to the execution system. Accepted orders will contain an Exchange allocated unique order ID which is to be used for all future references to the order. Each order will be given a particular time stamp by the system upon acceptance. Modified orders will also be time stamped again and will be assigned fresh order IDs.
The price, volume, retention & client ID of an order can be changed prior to execution, or for any unexecuted portion of an order
On every modification the order will carry a new time stamp and a new order ID.
Orders can be cancelled at any point prior to execution. All orders shall be automatically deleted from the system once their time condition has expired .
During the trading day the system will match orders with existing opposite type of orders which have the best price. Waiting orders are required to be matched in the following sequence:
The best buy order will match with the best sell order. The best buy order for a seller is the one with highest price and the best sell order for a buyer is the one with lowest price. An order may match partially with another order resulting in multiple trades.
The CEO in Committee of CSE will have the authority to suspend trading of specific securities, trading by specific members or permit the resumption of trading activities in the security by the member from the terminal. The matter however shall be informed to the SEC immediately within the trading day.
