(* 1) All pre-auction phases may end at a random second within the last minute of such phases. The MTA closing time is followed by the "Trading at the closing auction price" phase (17:36 to 17:42), during which you can enter orders at market price or at auction closing price and obtain execution. This stage involves default orders at the auction closing price or at market price not executed in the normal phase of auction closing.
(*2) A very limited number of instruments (currently less than ten) are negotiable only during the closing auction.
(* 3) At this time, you can enter and cancel orders at best. During the day, the Italian Stock Exchange will confirm orders, but Issuers may change the NAV's execution price to the next day; in the meantime the order will be kept in the negotiating position and from 10.55am will be made irrevocable.
(* 4) In pre-opening, from 07:50 to 08:50, quotations are not available, however, you can still enter or cancel orders. At the opening, there is the auction with random end, lasting for a maximum of 30 seconds. And then the intraday auction, during which there are two interruption minutes of continuous trading after 13:00, with slightly different timing on different segments of the market, as shown in table.
(* 5) Intraday auction from 13.25 to 13.30.
(* 6) Directa does not participate in the market's evening session (18:30 - 22:00) and ends the trading day before the trading day's official closure (at 18:30) to make possible the cancelling of all orders that are still active.
(* 7) From Sunday evening to that of Friday - For the characteristics of the currency pairs including the New Zealand dollar and the ruble please click here.
(* 8) From Sunday night to evening of Friday.
(* 9) Only for access through the ECN.
