Index-based Circuit Breakers, also known as market halt systems, are used when the NEPSE index moves by 4%, 5%, or 6% in any direction. When these circuit breakers are tripped, all stock trading comes to a standstill.
• In the instance of a 4% movement, the market would be halted for 20 minutes in either direction if it occurred during the first hour of trading, i.e. 12:00 hours. If this movement occurs after 12:00 a.m., no trading will be halted at this level, and the market will continue to trade.
• In the event of a 5% change, the market would be halted for 40 minutes in either direction if it occurred before 13:00 hours. There will be no trading stop at this level if this movement occurs after 13:00 hours, and the market will continue to trade.
• Trading will be halted for the remainder of the day if there is a 6 percent swing in either direction.
At least 14 enterprises have risen by 10% and have tripped circuit breakers. Today, all sectors rose significantly, with the Finance sector gaining the most (7.31%).
