HKEX Publishes Consultation Paper on Securities and Derivatives Trading Under Severe Weather Conditions

HKEX has published a consultation paper outlining proposals for its securities and derivatives markets to remain operational during severe weather conditions. The paper suggests that the markets, including Stock Connect, derivatives holiday trading, and after-hours trading, should remain open with necessary adjustments made for the closure of physical outlets. The consultation period will last for eight weeks, and HKEX is seeking feedback and suggestions from market participants. The aim is to ensure the availability of Hong Kong’s markets to investors globally, while prioritizing personnel safety during severe weather events.
