BSE mock trading session on May 28, NSE’s on June 4
Leading bourses BSE and NSE will conduct mock trading sessions on May 28 and June 4, respectively, to test system performance. BSE will conduct a mock trading session from its disaster recovery site. In three separate circulars, BSE said it will conduct a mock trading session from its disaster recovery site in currency derivatives, equity and equity derivatives segments on Saturday, May 28, 2016. As per Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) guidelines, the exchanges are required to conduct mock as well as live trading from disaster recovery sites to check the robustness of their systems. Trading members using third-party trading platforms can also use this opportunity to test their respective trading applications during mock trading sessions for various functionalities, including those under exceptional market conditions, BSE said. The session will be conducted from BSE’s disaster recovery site in Hyderabad. NSE will conduct the mock trading session in capital market, currency derivatives and futures and options (F&O) segments on June 4, it said in separate circulars. The move is part of NSE’s efforts to provide its members with a robust and an efficient platform for trading.
