Investors shall choose a brokerage firm which is member of the RSE to be their own brokerage representative to intermediate the trading.
Once chosen a brokerage firm, investors will open an investment account at that brokerage firm. However, in order to open the trading account, investors shall have a CRP issued by the Central Securities Depository (CSD). In practice, brokerage firms are accountable for applying for the CRP their clients with or without charging additional fees. When the account has been successfully opened, investors can place orders on the same business day.
To be able to trade in the Republican Stock Exchange of Uzbekistan (RSE), every investor has to first open an investment account at a brokerage firm that is the member of the RSE. One day later, investors can instruct that member, which acts as intermediary, to place orders to the RSE. The investors can make orders only if they have at least 100% of the amount of cash (for bid order) or 100% of the quantity of securities (for ask order). These cash and securities will be frozen by the member, once the orders are submitted, for the settlement purpose or until the orders become invalid.
RSE Trading System matches the submitted orders according to the predetermined auction principles, and then notifies the trade results to relevant members, which will in turn confirm the trade information with their respective customers (investors).
Once the trade information is confirmed by relevant members, on behalf of the customers, members shall pay for the purchased securities or deliver the sold securities to their counter parties (recipient members) with the cash or securities so far frozen.
Market opens to receive buy/sell orders from 09:30 and closes at 15:00 but the trading starts from 10:00 to 14:30 and at 15:00 once again before closing market.
Trading days shall be from Monday to Friday except public holidays.
There are two order types at the RSE, which are limit order and market order.
Limit Order – bid price as maximum offer price, ask price as minimum offer price.
Example: A bid limit order of 40,000 UZS may be traded at 40,000 UZS or lower, and an ask limit order of 40,000 UZS may be traded at 40,000 UZS or higher.
Market Order - instructs the broker to buy (or sell) at the best price that is currently available, this type of order will be executed immediately. However, market orders do not guarantee price
Basically, reference price should be the previous day’s closing price.
In case there is a corporate action such as capital increase/decrease, stock dividend, ex-right, split off, etc., the base price will be automatically adjusted by the RSE’s system using certain formula.
The prices calculated, when they are less than the price unit (tick size), should be rounded up to the price unit.
The order unit of equity securities on RSE shall be one (1) share.
The minimum trading unit of equity securities on RSE shall be one (1) share.
The price movements are based on price unit (tick size) in respect of price range below: (all amounts are in UZS)
