TWSE introduces stock market making mechanism at the end of June

To enhance the trading volume of quality stocks with low liquidity, the Taiwan Stock Exchange (“TWSE”) has set up certain criteria, including profitability, trading volume, turnover ratio, and dividend distribution, and selected 60 quality stocks with low liquidity from a wide range of sectors and categories. The market making mechanism for TWSE-listed stocks has be implemented on June 30, 2021. Eight securities dealers have applied to serve as market makers and one to serve as a liquidity provider so far. The TWSE will provide incentives such as trading fee rebates for these securities dealers with the goal of expanding the trading volume for these stocks via the market making mechanism.
