From the perspective of responding to changes in the environment surrounding the market and diversifying investor needs, TSE has established a working group for strengthening the functions of the cash equity market for the medium term. This working group will allow opinions to be gathered from a wide range of market participants regarding mainly improving resilience (to shorten the reboot time of the trading system and improve efficiency of data linkage in the event of a system failure), the trading rules and functions (quotation rules, risk management functions), as well as extension of trading hours and dealing with consecutive national holidays.
