NOTICE AND REQUEST FOR COMMENT

 

 

 

CNSX Markets Inc., (“CSE”) is filing this Notice in accordance with the process for the Review and Approval of Rules and Information Contained in Form 21-101F1 and the Exhibits Thereto attached as Appendices to the Exchange’s recognition orders (the “Protocol”).  The CSE intends to implement enhancements to its trading system in response to customer feedback.  The proposed changes are described below.

 

**********

  1. Description of the Proposed Changes

Immediate-or-cancel (IOC) instruction for peg order types

The addition of IOC pricing instructions is available to all peg order types.

  • The addition of the IOC option allows peg orders to support IOC time in force.
  • If an IOC peg order is sent to the CSE, any volume that is not filled upon receipt will be cancelled.

Examples

  1. No fill IOC peg

The market is at 9.00/9.01. A bid @9.01 with a midpoint peg, and pricing instruction IOC, is sent to the market.

 

Best Bid/Offer:

9.00/9.01

  1. Expected Implementation Date

The proposed Significant Change is expected to be implemented in Q2, 2021.

 

  1. Rationale for the Proposal

This feature will allow clients to use the currently available dark order types (pegs) to send an IOC ping to the CSE, targeting hidden liquidity within the National Best Bid or Offer, and having the order cancel should it not receive an immediate fill.

This would enhance our dark peg offering to include features that already exist on other marketplaces in Canada.

 

  1. Expected Impact

There is no expected impact on market structure as this feature is already present on other marketplaces in Canada. This pricing instruction is optional and will have minimal impact on market participants.

 

  1. Compliance with Ontario and British Columbia Securities Law

There is no expected impact on the CSE's compliance with Ontario or British Columbia securities laws.The changes will not affect fair access or the maintenance of fair and orderly markets.The changes are consistent with the fair access requirements set out in section 5.1 of NI21-101 as they are not confined to a limited number of marketplace participants and all marketplace participants will remain subject to the same rules and conditions.

 

  1. Technology Changes

Clients already support similar features (to the ones proposed) on other Canadian marketplaces. The CSE does not anticipate there will be any need for material technology changes.

 

  1. Other Markets or Jurisdictions

The table below identifies where the proposed functionality is new or currently available.
