Circuit Breakers

In response to the market breaks in October 1987 and October 1989, the New York Stock Exchange instituted circuit breakers to reduce volatility and promote investor confidence. By implementing a pause in trading, investors are given time to assimilate incoming information and the ability to make informed choices during periods of high market volatility. In 2012, in connection with its approval of the Regulation NMS Plan to Address Extraordinary Market Volatility, commonly referred to as the Limit Up ? Limit Down Plan, the SEC approved amendments to Rule 80B (Trading Halts Due to Extraordinary Market Volatility) that revise the halt provisions and circuit-breaker levels. Amended Rule 80B is operative during the pilot period of the Limit Up ? Limit Down Plan.

Rule 80B

Effective April 8, 2013, amended Rule 80B will be in effect. Amended Rule 80B replaces:

  • the DJIA with the S&P 500 as the benchmark index for measuring a market decline;
  • the quarterly calendar recalculation of Rule 80B triggers with daily recalculations; and
  • the 10%, 20%, and 30% market decline percentages with 7%, 13%, and 20% market decline percentages.

Amended Rule 80B also modifies:

  • the length of the trading halts associated with each market decline level; and
  • the times when a trading halt may be triggered.

Specifically, the circuit-breaker halt for a Level 1 (7%) or Level 2 (13%) decline occurring after 9:30 a.m. Eastern and up to and including 3:25 p.m. Eastern, or in the case of an early scheduled close, 12:25 p.m. Eastern, would result in a trading halt in all stocks for 15 minutes. If the market declined by 20%, triggering a Level 3 circuit-breaker, at any time, trading would be halted for the remainder of the day.

A Level 1 or Level 2 halt can only occur once per trading day. For example, if a Level 1 Market Decline was to occur and trading was halted, following the reopening of trading, the NYSE would not halt the market again unless a Level 2 Market Decline was to occur. Likewise, following the reopening of trading after a Level 2 Market Decline, the NYSE would not halt trading again unless a Level 3 Market Decline were to occur, at which point, trading in all stocks would be halted until the primary market opens the next trading day.

Rule Filing

Approval Order

Clearly Erroneous Execution

A Clearly Erroneous Execution (CEE) is defined as an execution at a price, for a quantity of shares, or with a symbol, that is substantially inconsistent with the current trading pattern of the issue. CEE Requests for Review are processed using a web-based submission service, designed to expedite and simplify review request entries and to help customers meet submission deadlines.

All NYSE, NYSE MKT, or NYSE Arca Submission Forms, and detailed CEE guidelines and policies are available on the Clearly Erroneous Execution landing page.

As of Monday, October 5, 2009 in conjunction with the other U.S. equities markets and pursuant to the NYSE Rule 128?NYSE changed the procedure to request a review of clearly erroneous trades.

Crossing Session Information

For NYSE and NYSE MKT equity trading license holders, the Exchange currently offers a two sided crossing session for program trades through its Electronic Filing Platform (EFP).

Crossing Session (Program Trades)

Accommodates the trading of program baskets of at least 15 NYSE securities regardless of value. Members that have either facilitated a basket trade or have paired two customers' baskets can submit aggregate information to the Exchange for immediate execution.

Reports of execution are available via the web-based electronic platform (EFP) shortly after the trade is entered. At 6:30 p.m., the NYSE prints the aggregate information of all baskets executed in this session to the consolidated tape. On the third day following the trade date (T+3), individual component stocks that were executed as part of a basket trade are printed in aggregate form in the NYSE Daily Sales Report.

Routing Policy

NYSE, NYSE MKT and NYSE Arca (the ?Exchanges?) route orders to away markets through either an Exchange affiliated router or one or more third-party routing brokers pursuant to NYSE and NYSE MKT Rule 17 and NYSE Arca Rule 7.45. Each third-party routing broker used by the Exchanges has its own policies and procedures with respect to the manner in which it may round or truncate execution prices that extend beyond four decimal places. Some third-party routing brokers may round to the fourth decimal place, while others may truncate to the fourth decimal place, before returning executions to the Exchanges. With the exception of routing in BRK A, those policies and procedures are established by the third-party routing broker and are not established by or at the request of the Exchanges and are not overseen by the Exchanges. In the case of BRK A, all executions returned in more than two decimal places will be truncated to two decimal places.

Floor Information

The New York Stock Exchange trading floor is being transformed into a 21st century trading environment with improved design, technology and a network better capable of supporting all of a firm's trading applications.

The innovative next-generation trading floor makes it much easier for firms to access all markets from the NYSE while still being able to access the NYSE point of sale where brokers can interest designated market makers directly in the auction.

Brokers can now represent customers more effectively and efficiently, with better access to trading information and market centers. The new environment has a more robust network and additional desktop functionality, which improves a broker's ability to trade in both the physical and electronic components of our market. Traders on the floor and "upstairs" off-exchange desks can now operate together.

Risk Management Tools

NYSE/NYSE MKT and NYSE Arca are introducing new tools to supplement a firm?s own internal risk management tools. The Risk Management Tools (RMT) is a GUI that allows users to track executed exposure and make real-time adjustments to net exposure limits via a web interface.

Risk Management Tools (RMT) allow firms to:

  • Define net exposure limits by risk group
  • Track net notional exposure by risk group on NYSE/NYSE MKT or NYSE Arca
  • View net notional exposure by symbol or mnemonic
  • Receive email or web based alerts when nearing or breaching a firm defined limit
  • In a future phase, auto-block and/or auto-cancel orders when firm determined exposure limits are breached

There is no cost for RMT.

Use of RMT is voluntary and designed to supplement a firm's own tools.

Additionally, firms will have the ability to bulk cancel orders via API if needed:

To access RMT, an authorized signatory of the firm must submit a User Request Form. To set up RMT email notifications, the firm must submit an Email Notification Authorization Form.
