TFEX: Annual SET BCP Test

June 10

The TT Production environment will be available and set up for handling BCP activities. All members are required to participate in the test.

SET has provided to all participants a test script and updated timings for this test in their “SET-FEED (MME) News #6/2023 email”. Members can reach out to their respective exchange contacts for these details . They can also reach out to TT for any clarification .

Note that TFEX has planned for both a BCP and a DRP test on the same day . TT is only planning to participate in the BCP test . 

Update: BIST: BISTECH 3.0

New Date, TBD

A new phase of the BISTECH system, called BISTECH 3.0, is announced to be launched by the exchange. The go live date for this, which was earlier planned for 12th June, has been pushed back by the exchange, and details on the new release date are awaited.

As part of this upgrade, the TT platform will support the connection changes required for the FIX Order Entry and TIP channels in the derivatives markets.

Equity Markets, Fixed Income Markets, Precious Metals Markets, exchange’s Drop Copy functionality and ITCH protocol for market data are not supported by the TT platform currently, and hence the TT platform will be unaffected by any changes to these.

On the last business day before the go live date, in preparation for the transition to BISTECH 3.0, there will be no evening session in the Derivatives market and all GTC, GTD and inactive Stop orders waiting in the system will be deleted by the exchange, and these will not be reinstated post the cutover. Hence, TT recommends that traders cancel such orders on or before this date.

On the go live date, company admins will need to update the order entry connection settings with the latest user details that they may have received from the exchange, in order to be able to enter orders post this change.

SGX_GIFT: Full-scale Operation of NSE IFSC-SGX

July 3

SGX has announced that the full transition of SGX Nifty derivatives to NSE IFSC (SGX GIFT City) will be on July 3, 2023.

SGX GIFT City went live on July 29, 2022. Since that time, the NIFTY products have been trading in parallel on both the “SGX” (Titan) and the “SGX_GIFT” (GIFT City – NSE) platforms.

Starting from July 3, 2023 there will be a permanent shutdown of NIFTY trading on SGX Titan. From that time, all SGX users must trade NIFTY on SGX_GIFT. The exchange is keeping far months available on SGX Titan throughout the transition to aid Risk / Position management.

All of the above points apply to DMA trading only. Users sending Trade Report (NLT / Wholesale / OTC) orders will continue to use the SGX Titan platform even after the transition.

For TT users, there are no specific steps that need to be taken on our platform to prepare. SODs and position tracking on our platform should be managed by the customers as needed, but all other operations will take place entirely on the exchange side.
