SC and Bursa Malaysia to End Temporary Revision of Market Management and Control Mechanisms
10 May 2021  |   Kuala Lumpur

The Securities Commission Malaysia (SC) and Bursa Malaysia Berhad (Bursa Malaysia) will reinstate market management and control mechanisms, namely the dynamic and static price limits for FBMKLCI Index Component Stocks and the Bursa Malaysia Circuit Breaker trigger levels, to their original parameters on 31 May 2021.
The decision to reinstate the original parameters takes into account the improving economic outlook with the roll-out of the COVID-19 vaccination programme and normalisation of global market conditions.

The temporary revisions to the market management and control mechanisms which have been in place since 20 July 2020, are scheduled to expire on 30 May 2021.

The SC and Bursa Malaysia will continue to closely monitor global developments and take a prudent approach in implementing necessary measures to support a fair and orderly market.
