Market Integrity Update - Special Issue 2 - March 2020
Continuing to support market operations
Protecting the Australian community from the health, economic and social effects of the COVID-19 global pandemic is the key focus of the Australian Government. ASIC is working to support this effort by ensuring the financial system is able to operate effectively and markets remain open.
Further to our Markets Integrity Update released on 20 March, we’re working closely with exchanges and market participants to make sure markets remain fair and orderly so that investors can continue to manage risk and companies can raise capital with confidence.
Both ASX and Chi-X are fully operational and their usual trading hours continue to apply.
We continue to actively monitor market developments domestically and overseas. We’ll take further action as appropriate to ensure the financial system continues to function effectively.
