NSE asks brokers to implement risk-reduction mode

NSE said the stock broker would be moved back to the normal risk management mode as and when his  collateral is lower than 85% utilisation level

Mumbai: The National Stock Exchange has asked its trading members to compulsorily implement a risk reduction mode when 90% of their capital is utilised towards margins, following market regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI)'s directive, reports PTI.

 

The move would be applicable for capital market and future & options segment. It would be effective from 24 December 2012, NSE said in a statement.

 

The stock broker would be moved back to the normal risk management mode as and when the collateral of the stock broker was lower than 85% utilisation level, NSE said.

 

SEBI last week asked bourses to ensure that the stock brokers mandatorily put in place "risk-reduction mode".

 

Under this mode, all unexecuted trades would be cancelled when 90% of the stock broker's collateral available for adjustment against margins gets utilised.

 

SEBI came out with stringent norms for bourses after a set of erroneous orders placed by brokerage Emkay Global on 5th October led to the Nifty crashing over 15% within a few minutes of opening.
