Trade at Close
Trade at Close (TAC) is a 10 minute trading phase commencing immediately after the closing auction.
TAC is a 10 minute trading phase commencing immediately after the closing auction.
The 10-minute-long TAC phase will immediately follow the closing auction routine and allows participants to execute orders at the closing auction price set during the closing auction routine. The TAC session will occur at 5.06pm to 5.16pm on a regular trading day and from 12.06pm to 12.16pm if the market is trading for half a day.
An important aspect of the TAC phase is that it will only occur if a closing auction price (CAP) is established for the security. In addition orders entered during the TAC phase will only be filled if there is adequate interest on the other side of the trade. For instance, a TAC buy order will only be filled if there is an equal or larger amount of shares offered by a seller at the TAC price.
Once your order is filled, a confirmation will be sent to you via e-mail. You will also receive a contract note sent by the CDP.
After you submit your order, you can view its status from myOrders (which can be accessed from the navigation bar at the top of all site pages). Status definitions are as follows:

To withdraw an order, please use the “Withdraw” button on the “Place Order Form”.
