The trading process relies on market orders. These orders are matched by computer terminals, without market makers. An investor places a market order directly and is assigned a trading number. The trading computer matches the order instantly with a limit order. Throughout the transaction, both the seller and buyer remain anonymous.

If there is no match, the order is added as a new item to a list. The order sequence is determined based on price-time precedence. The exchange prioritizes the order with the highest price. In such cases, if two orders are equal in price, the exchange matches the first order with the earlier timestamp.
