In the event the Milanka Price Index (MPI) (or the index that may replace the MPI in the future) drops 5% within the day from the previous market day's close, a "Market Halt" be imposed on all equity securities for a period of 30 minutes. This is effective from 2nd January 2009. Market wide index based circuit breakers are imposed by stock exchanges to halt trading of equity securities in order to provide a "cooling off" period when there is an unusual movement in the index.
Broker Firms may cancel any pending orders during the "Market Halt". However Broker Firms cannot enter new orders or amend pending orders during the "Market Halt".
