2. Rationale for Rules
All market participants should have equal opportunity. The objective of a suspension and trading halt is usually to facilitate proper dissemination of material information to the market place to ensure the operation of a fair market. Hence, SGX-ST Rules 8.13.4 and 8.15.7 stop all trading of a security or futures contract by a Trading Member if the security or futures contract is under suspension or trading halt. However, SGX-ST recognises that there may be circumstances under which off-market trading of the security or futures contract is appropriate.
