The major functions are: – Listing of Companies. (As per Listing Regulations). – Providing the screen based automated trading of listed Securities. – Settlement of trading. (As per Settlement of Transaction Regulations) – Gifting of share / granting approval to the transaction/transfer of share outside the trading system of the exchange (As per Listing Regulations 42) – Market Administration & Control. – Market Surveillance. – Publication of Monthly Review. – Monitoring the activities of listed companies. (As per Listing Regulations). – Investors grievance Cell (Disposal of complaint bye laws 1997). Investors Protection Fund (As per investor protection fund Regulations 1999) – Announcement of Price sensitive or other information about listed companies through online. Surveillance at DSE The main objective of the Surveillance function of the Exchange is to promote market integrity in two ways – By monitoring price and volume movements (volatility) as well as by detecting potential market abuses at a nascent stage, with a view to minimizing the ability of the market participants to influence the price of the scrip/scrips in the absence of any meaningful information. By managing default risk by taking necessary actions timely.

Market Abuse is a broad term which includes abnormal price/volume movement, artificial transactions, false or misleading impressions, insider trading, etc. In order to detect aberrant behavior/ movement, it is necessary to know the normal market behavior – The department carries out investigation, if necessary, based on the preliminary examination/analysis and suitable actions are taken against members involved based on the investigation. All the instruments traded in the market come under the Surveillance umbrella of DSE. Surveillance activities at the Exchange are divided broadly into two major segments –

Price Monitoring : Price monitoring is manly related to the price movement/ abnormal fluctuation in prices or volumes etc. Position Monitoring : The position monitoring relates mainly to abnormal positions of members, etc. in order to manage default risk. Price Monitoring The functioning of the Price Monitoring is broadly divided into following activities – On line Surveillance One of the most important tools of the Surveillance is the On-line Real Time Surveillance system with main objectives of detecting potential market abuses at a nascent stage to reduce the ability of the market participants o unduly influence the price and volumes of the scrips traded at the Exchange, improve the risk management system and strengthen the self regulatory mechanism at the Exchange. The system provides facility to access trades and orders of members. Off-Line Surveillance The Off-Line Surveillance system comprises of the various reports based on different parameters and scrutiny thereof – High/ Low Difference in prices % change in prices over a week/ fortnight/ month Top N scrips by Turnover over a week/ fortnight/ month Top N scrips by Volume over a week/ fortnight/ month Trading in infrequently traded scrips

Scrips hitting New High / Low etc. The Surveillance actions or investigations are initiated in the scrips identified from the above-stated reports. Investigations Conducting in-depth investigations based on preliminary enquiries/analysis made into trading of the scrip.

Comments received from the companies are disseminated to the market by way of online news bulletin. Investigations based on rumor verifications are carried out, if required, to detect cases of suspected insider trading. Position Monitoring

The Surveillance Department closely monitors outstanding exposure of members on a daily basis. For this purpose, it observes various off-line and on-line market monitoring reports. The reports are scrutinized to ascertain whether there is excessive purchase or sale position build up compared to the normal business of the member, whether there are concentrated purchases or sales, whether the purchases have been made by inactive or financially weak members and even the quality of scrips is considered to assess the quality of exposure. The following key areas are examined to assess the market risk involved –

DSE Automated Trading System Preamble TESA Functional Model Hardware TESA’s principal trading functions Network (LAN / WAN) Markets System Software

Trading Sessions Application Software Market Control TESA Architecture Market Information Solution Benefits Broker Support PREAMBLE Globally the developments in information & communication technologies (ICT) have created a new instance in the securities market operations. Stock Exchanges all over the world have realized the potentiality of ICT and inclined to the electronic trading systems. It was understood by DSE that technology would ensure transparency, timeliness and satisfaction in customer service. Considering those DSE introduced Automated Trading System on 10th August 1998.

In other words, the trading floor moved right into the member’s office premises where an investor started to place buy/sell orders. Considering market growth the Automated Trading System was upgraded two times. The recently Upgraded Trading System was started from 21st December, 2008. HARDWARE DSE Automated Trading System (HP NonStop S7806) is running on fault tolerant, high available, scalable and maintainable Mainframe Server. Previously DSE established the TANDEM NonStop K204 System on September 1998 and on August 2005 it was replaced with highly scaleable HP NonStop S7802. DSE upgraded the Trading System again on 21st December, 2008.

The existing HP NonStop S7806 Server is highly fault tolerant to the fact that no single component failure will halt the system. Its constituent parts are hot swappable, and upward compatible; components can be added or removed while the system is running and any compatible new upgraded will work with the system. All disk drives are mirrored so, if any of the disk crashes the exact copy of the data is available at online. Moreover the connecting path for every disk whether it is primary or mirror is also redundant. In every case, minimum two peripheral devices exist. All the components are working active – active load balancing procedure .

To ensure better power quality we have ensured high end UPS’s with long durable backup capability, two instant backup generations and other electrical devices. NETWORK (LAN / WAN) All the Member (238 members) Server Applications (MSA) are connected with NonStop HP S-Series Server through either DSE LAN or WAN connectivity. Each member has one or more Trader Work Station (TWS). The TWSs are being connected to the Trading Server via respective MSA through LAN and WAN connection. DSE outsourced MetroNet Ltd. , DNS Ltd. , X-Net Ltd. , Dhaka Com Ltd. , Ranks ITT, Link-3, Royal Green Online Ltd. tc Network Service Providers (NSP under WAN Expansion Project). Now a days members can establish a main office or branch offices to their remote location and can trade smoothly by using different media ADSL, Optical fiber and Radio Link from Dhaka and other important cities such as Gazipur, Narayanganj, Comilla, Hobiganj, Chittagong, Sylhet, Khulna, Barisal, Rajshahi, Bogra at the same time. Three DSE branch offices located at Chittagong, Sylhet and Khulna are connected via BTTB’s DDN link. We also used another connectivity for redundancy for the DDN link. We have a plan to reach the DSE branches in same way.

DSE LAN/WAN Expansion DSE LAN/WAN Expansion Within Dhaka City: Outside of Dhaka City: In case of trade interruption due to serious hardware, software, network failure or telecommunication disruption at the Brokerage houses, there is a provision to allow traders to trade at DSE Contingency Trading floor. SYSTEM SOFTWARE The system software is HP Proprietary NonStop KERNEL and includes the database as part of the operating system thereby eliminating the layer typically found in most Database Management Systems (DBMS).

The Database functionalities are handled by NONSTOP SQL, which is simply a different operational session for the operating system. The proprietary nature of the system software arguably enhances system security. Operating system is HP’s proprietary NonStop Kernel DBMS handled by NonStop SQL. The system software treats all its hardware resources as objects and is thus entirely message driven. This then allows application software to be deployed using client / server architecture providing shared data processing between the central server and the user workstation.

The central trading system resides in the Stock Exchange premises, which is running 24 hrs in a day & 365 days in a year. APPLICATION SOFTWARE The application, which runs in DSE for trading, is called TESA (The Electronic Securities Architecture). TESA has two parts: MSA (Member’s Server Application) ; TWS (Trader workstation). MSA is the “Gateway” between the traders and the Stock Exchange, which manages all the transactions and database operations between the traders and the Trading Engine. TWS is the Front-end Application closer to investors, where they can submit Buy/Sell orders for their desired securities

TESA (The Electronics Securities Architecture) is the Trading software (Based on HP proprietary O/S ; DBMS) It has developed in view of Distributed Database system In the client site it is being using SQL as local Database Trading Software is MSA ; TWS In STSD (Signal trader Single Database) system both MSA ; TWS are running on a Windows 2k Professional /XP Professional workstation and for MTSD (Multiple trader Single Database) MSA install in a Windows 2k Server ; the TWSs are in different Windows 2k Professional /XP Professional workstation-using members in house LAN

TESA ARCHITECTURE TESA software is built for the global securities markets. It uses fault tolerant computers, intelligent workstations and client / server design techniques. This provides co-operative processing, high message integrity, continuous operation and fully automatic recovery. This co-operative mechanism enables very high speed processing which is essential for today’s electronic markets. TESA’s Application Programmatic Interface (API) is the gateway to the TESA system from the outside world. All external devices connect through the API.

The API provides the translation between external devices and internal processes. This means that a new process does not need to be written to support each new device, only the API needs to be modified. back to top SOLUTION BENEFITS The TESA application suite derives significant advantages from being implemented on the HP NonStop platform. The HP NonStop customers have benefited from these advantages. Fault Tolerance: One of the most important automation requirements for any stock exchange system is continuous system availability.

With most systems Fault Tolerance is created at the application level. Fault Tolerance is a fundamental design feature of the HP NonStop architecture. Data Integrity: Data integrity is an integral feature of HP architecture. TESA employs standard HP tools to achieve exceptional data integrity. Scalability: The ability of an exchange to accommodate extraordinary increases in transaction volumes without loss of its Capital investment in automation is very important. The HP NonStop Server is massively scalable due to Parallel processors. TESA FUNCTIONAL MODEL

An overview of the TESA Functional Model Client / Server: TESA’s Client / Server architecture enables an efficient allocation of computing resources and provides easily modified user-friendly interfaces. TESA workstations operate under Windows 2K/ XP professional and can function either as servers on a broker’s network or as workstation. These are used to perform trading and settlement activity by the brokers. PRINCIPAL FUNCTIONS OF TESA Market Information: Supplying all market information needed to formulate the buy and sell decisions.

Order Management: Accept, validate and store orders and quotes from broker workstations and / or systems. Order Execution: Automatically executes orders when buy and sell prices match. Trade Reporting: Trade execution reports are provided to each trade participant, to the settlement system and / or the depository and to the market. Index Calculation: Calculates and publishes market indices (DSE General Index ; Weighted Average Index. ) Market Access: Provide exchange members with efficient affordable GUI-based tools for accessing the market.

No trades will be executed in this session Continuous Trading: During this phase, participants enter orders and immediate execution or for inclusion in the book. Automatic matching and execution takes place based on best price/ first in, first out trading rules Closing: Closing prices are calculated and disseminated to market participants Enquiry: Market will be closed in this session ; other facilities like the previous enquiry session. MARKET CONTROL

The Market Control Workstation allows the exchange administrative staff to control the operation of the market, e. g. Session Control: Opening and closing the market via interactive control or by preset timers. Validation Parameters: Setting and viewing parameters that control the trading engine validation e. g. tick size, Circuit Breaker, Circuit Filter, Market lot, Price protection Percentage. Messaging: Allows the dissemination of company announcement data and general market administrative massages. MARKET INFORMATION Market Information is a real-time market data system.

It collects, manages, generates and stores information relating to trade instruments and issuing companies. Market Information is responsible for, Collecting Real-Time Market Information: Bids, offers, last sale (i. e. most recent trade price and volume), book and other data are gathered via the Trading engine. It supports TESA’s automated and manual trading modules and can process the trades of external and off-market systems. Collecting company Information: All information supplied by the listed companies are maintained in the TESA database.

Generating Market Statistics: TESA generates market indices on a real time basis. It generates other statistical information such as Price. BROKER SUPPORT Research and Enquiry: this module provides brokers access to the local Broker Support and TESA databases for enquiries and research purposes. Public Order Book Broker Order Book The multi-windows environment allows users to simultaneously view orders, market and trades. Broker Support offers Stock Exchange members two configurations; standalone and multi-user.

Both configurations maintain a database consisting of information generated by the TESA Server and the local system. Algorithm of DSE Indices Index Calculation Algorithm (according to IOSCO Index Methodology): Yesterday’s Closing Index X Current M. Cap Current Index = ————————————————————– Opening M. Cap Yesterday’s Closing Index X Closing M. Cap Closing Index = ————————————————————– Opening M. Cap Current M. Cap = ? ( LTP X Total no. of indexed shares )

Closing M. Cap = ? ( CP X Total no. of indexed shares ) There are three indices in the DSE as follows : Sl.

Therefore total capital of such companies is divided into smaller equal denomination units represented by a share/ capital. One may buy large or small lots to match the amount of money that one wants to invest. A company’s share price can rise or fall as a result of its own performance or market conditions.

Stock price fluctuations The price of a stock fluctuates fundamentally due to the theory of supply and demand. Like all commodities in the market, the price of a stock is sensitive to demand. However, there are many factors that influence the demand for a particular stock. The field of fundamental analysis and technical analysis attempt to understand market conditions that lead to price changes, or even predict future price levels. A recent study[12] shows that customer satisfaction, as measured by the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI), is significantly correlated to the market value of a stock.

Stock price may be influenced by analyst’s business forecast for the company and outlooks for the company’s general market segment. Share price determination At any given moment, an equity’s price is strictly a result of supply and demand. The supply is the number of shares offered for sale at any one moment. The demand is the number of shares investors wish to buy at exactly that same time. The price of the stock moves in order to achieve and maintain equilibrium. When prospective buyers outnumber sellers, the price rises. Eventually, sellers attracted to the high selling price enter the market and/or buyers leave, achieving equilibrium between buyers and sellers.

When sellers outnumber buyers, the price falls. Eventually buyers enter and/or sellers leave, again achieving equilibrium. Thus, the value of a share of a company at any given moment is determined by all investors voting with their money. If more investors want a stock and are willing to pay more, the price will go up. If more investors are selling a stock and there aren’t enough buyers, the price will go down. Note: “For Nasdaq-listed stocks, the price quote includes information on the bid and ask prices for the stock. “[13] Of course, that does not explain how people decide the maximum price at which they are willing to buy or the minimum at which they are willing to sell.

In professional investment circles the efficient market hypothesis (EMH) continues to be popular, although this theory is widely discredited in academic and professional circles. Briefly, EMH says that investing is overall (weighted by a Stdev) rational; that the price of a stock at any given moment represents a rational evaluation of the known information that might bear on the future value of the company; and that share prices of equities are priced efficiently, which is to say that they represent accurately the expected value of the stock, as best it can be known at a given moment. In other words, prices are the result of discounting expected future cash flows. The EMH model, if true, has at least two interesting consequences.

First, because financial risk is presumed to require at least a small premium on expected value, the return on equity can be expected to be slightly greater than that available from non-equity investments: if not, the same rational calculations would lead equity investors to shift to these safer non-equity investments that could be expected to give the same or better return at lower risk. Second, because the price of a share at every given moment is an “efficient” reflection of expected value, then—relative to the curve of expected return—prices will tend to follow a random walk, determined by the emergence of information (randomly) over time.

Professional equity investors therefore immerse themselves in the flow of fundamental information, seeking to gain an advantage over their competitors (mainly other professional investors) by more intelligently interpreting the emerging flow of information (news). The EMH model does not seem to give a complete description of the process of equity price determination. For example, stock markets are more volatile than EMH would imply. In recent years it has come to be accepted that the share markets are not perfectly efficient, perhaps especially in emerging markets or other markets that are not dominated by well-informed professional investors.

Another theory of share price determination comes from the field of Behavioral Finance. According to Behavioral Finance, humans often make irrational decisions—particularly, related to the buying and selling of securities—based upon fears and misperceptions of outcomes. The irrational trading of securities can often create securities prices which vary from rational, fundamental price valuations. For instance, during the technology bubble of the late 1990s (which was followed by the dot-com bust of 2000-2002), technology companies were often bid beyond any rational fundamental value because of what is commonly known as the “greater fool theory”.

The “greater fool theory” holds that, because the predominant method of realizing returns in equity is from the sale to another investor, one should select securities that they believe that someone else will value at a higher level at some point in the future, without regard to the basis for that other party’s willingness to pay a higher price. Thus, even a rational investor may bank on others’ irrationality. Nine Laws of Price Sensitivity In their book, The Strategy and Tactics of Pricing, Thomas Nagle and Reed Holden outlined 9 laws or factors that influence a buyer’s price sensitivity with respect to a given purchase: [2][3] 1. Reference Price Effect Buyer’s price sensitivity for a given product increases the higher the product’s price relative to perceived alternatives. Perceived alternatives can vary by buyer segment, by occasion, and other factors. 2.

Difficult Comparison Effect Buyers are less sensitive to the price of a known / more reputable product when they have difficulty comparing it to potential alternatives. 3. Switching Costs Effect The higher the product-specific investment a buyer must make to switch suppliers, the less price sensitive that buyer is when choosing between alternatives. 4. Price-Quality Effect Buyers are less sensitive to price the more that higher prices signal higher quality. Products for which this effect is particularly relevant include: image products, exclusive products, and products with minimal cues for quality. 5. Expenditure Effect Buyers are more price sensitive when the expense accounts for a large percentage of buyers’ available income or budget. 6.

End-Benefit Effect The effect refers to the relationship a given purchase has to a larger overall benefit, and is divided into two parts: Derived demand: The more sensitive buyers are to the price of the end benefit, the more sensitive they will be to the prices of those products that contribute to that benefit. Price proportion cost: The price proportion cost refers to the percent of the total cost of the end benefit accounted for by a given component that helps to produce the end benefit (e. g. , think CPU and PCs). The smaller the given components share of the total cost of the end benefit, the less sensitive buyers will be to the component’s price. 7. Shared-cost Effect The smaller the portion of the purchase price buyers must pay for themselves, the less price sensitive they will be. 8.

Fairness Effect Buyers are more sensitive to the price of a product when the price is outside the range they perceive as “fair” or “reasonable” given the purchase context. 9. The Framing Effect Buyers are more price sensitive when they perceive the price as a loss rather than a forgone gain, and they have greater price sensitivity when the price is paid separately rather than as part of a bundle.

A price mechanism or market-based mechanism refers to a wide variety of ways to match up buyers and sellers through price rationing. It also describes the price of goods and services based on the demand and supply. An example of a price mechanism uses announced bid and ask prices. Generally speaking, when two parties wish to engage in a trade, the purchaser will announce a price he is willing to pay (the bid price) and seller will announce a price he is willing to accept (the ask price). The main advantage of such a method is that conditions are laid out in advance and transactions can proceed with no further permission or authorization from any participant.

When any bid and ask pair are compatible, a transaction occurs, in most cases automatically. |Contents | |[hide] | |1 Stock market | |2 Auctions | |3 Other Applications | |4 See also | [pic][edit] Stock market When trading in a stock market, a person who has shares to sell may not wish to sell them at the current market price (quote). Likewise, a person who wishes to buy shares may not wish to pay the current market price either. Some negotiation is necessary in order for a transaction to occur.

The negotiation often comes in the form of adjusting the bid prices and the ask prices as the value of the share goes up and down. For example, if the share is worth $10, a buyer may “bid” $9. 97 (3 cents less), and a seller may ask for $10. 02 (2 cents more). If the value of the stock goes down, a seller may be forced to reduce his asking price. Conversely, if the value of the stock goes up, a buyer may be forced to increase his bidding price. Most of the time, the bid and ask prices remain very close to the market value of the share, often separated by only a couple of cents. The difference between the bid and ask price is called the Bid/ask spread. In actual trading, the parties involved might use a limit order to specify which bid or ask price he wishes to trade at.

The trader specifies the number of shares and his bid/ask price (depending on whether he is buying or selling). Such orders can have execution limits, such as “by end of day” or “all or nothing”. [edit] Auctions Main article: Auction An auction is a price mechanism where bidders can make competing offers for a good. The minimum bid may or may not be set by the seller, who may choose to predetermine an ask price. The highest bidder, or the first one to reach a preset ask price, would be awarded the transaction. [edit] Other Applications If the terms “pay” and “sell” are understood very generally, then, a very broad range of applications and different market systems can be enabled this way.

Internet dating for instance could be based on offers to talk for a period of time, accepted by those who are compensated not in money but in additional credits to keep using the system. Or, a political party could trade support for different measures in a platform, perhaps using allocation voting to “bid” a certain amount of support for a measure that a leader has “asked” them to support: if the measure has enough support in the party, the leader will proceed; a very explicit model of so-called “political capital”. Though there are many concerns about liquidating any given transaction, even in a conventional market, there are ideologies which hold that the risks are outweighed by the efficient rendezvous.

In greenhouse gas emissions trading, companies doing the “bidding” argue that the whole of Earth’s atmosphere can be seen as one uniform body affected almost equally by emissions anywhere on Earth. [neutrality is disputed] They argue further that, as a result, there are almost no local effects, and only a measurable and widely agreed climate change effect, of a greenhouse gas emission, justifying a “cap and trade” approach. Somewhat more controversially, the approach was applied even earlier to sulfur dioxide emissions in the United States, and was quite successful in reducing overall smog output there. In most applications of such methods, however, the comprehensive outcome of the transaction is not so easily measured or universally agreed.

Some theorists assert that, with appropriate controls, a market mechanism can replace a hierarchy, even a command hierarchy, by ordering actions for which the highest bid is received: An infamous example is the assassination market proposed by Timothy C. May, which were effectively bets on someone’s death. This has since been generalized into the prediction market idea which the Pentagon proposed to operate as part of Total Information Awareness; however, this proved controversial as it would theoretically let assassins predict and then benefit from their predictions, which they would cause to come true. This is a problem even with the commodity markets and any other financial markets, where a single person’s choices or fate might be influenced, predicted, or decided by someone already in the market.

Less controversial applications of bid and ask matching include: • industrial process control • various applications in social networks (including dating above) • calculating interest in court judgments or homestead credit • determining which of several assets in a divorce are most prized by each party, and accordingly, who should receive what for maximum amiability and minimum capital asset sale and lifestyle disruption Price system From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation, search In economics, a price system is any economic system that effects its distribution of goods and services with prices and employing any form of money or debt tokens.

Except for possible remote and primitive communities, all modern societies use price systems to allocate resources. However, price systems are not used for all resource allocation decisions today. Contents •1 Fixed price versus free price systems •2 History •3 Friedrich A. Hayek on the price system •4 See also •5 References Fixed price versus free price systems A price system may be either a fixed price system where prices are set by a government or it may be a free price system where prices are left to float freely as determined by unregulated supply and demand. Or it may be a combination of both with a mixed price system. History Fundamentally, price systems have been around as long as there has been trade or money.

The institutional economist Torstein Viable wrote a tract which was seminal in development of the term as discussed in this article: The Engineers and the Price System. Its chapter VI, A Memorandum on a Practicable Soviet of Technicians discusses the possibility of socialist revolution in the United States comparable to that then occurring in Russia (the Soviets had not yet at that time become a state (USSR formed in 1922)). From its beginnings, the price system has evolved into the system of global capitalism that is present in the early 21st century. [4] The Soviet Union and other communist nations with a centralized planned economy were controlled price systems.

Whether the ruble or the dollar is used in the economic system, the criteria of a price system are the use of money as an arbiter and usual final arbiter of whether a thing is done or not. In other words, few things are done without consideration for the costs and the potential making of a profit in a price system. Friedrich A. Hayek on the price system For more details on this topic, see Price signal. Austrian School economist Friedrich A. Hayek argued that a free price system allowed economic coordination via the price signals that changing prices sent, which is regarded as one of his most significant and influential contributions to economics. From “The Use of Knowledge in Society”… The price system is just one of those formations which man has learned to use (though he is still very far from having learned to make the best use of it) after he had stumbled upon it without understanding it. Through it not only a division of labor but also a coordinated utilization of resources based on an equally divided knowledge has become possible. The people who like to deride any suggestion that this may be so usually distort the argument by insinuating that it asserts that by some miracle just that sort of system has spontaneously grown up which is best suited to modern civilization. It is the other way round: man has been able to develop that division of labor on which our civilization is based because he happened to stumble upon a method which made it possible.

Had he not done so, he might still have developed some other, altogether different, type of civilization, something like the “state” of the termite ants, or some other altogether unimaginable type’… Friedrich A.
