Standardization of Trading Units

Shifted to Standardized Trading Unit of 100 Shares for Domestic Stocks on October 1, 2018

TSE and other domestic stock exchanges have pushed for a single trading unit of 100 shares for the purpose of improving market convenience for investors since November 2007.

Thanks to the cooperation between stock exchanges and listed companies, the variety of trading units was successfully reduced from the former eight lots to the two lots of 100 and 1,000 shares by 2014, and then to a single lot of 100 shares on October 1, 2018.

TSE is committed to operating cash equity markets where all investors can trade more easily.
