Sebi, stock exchanges step up surveillance of intra-day trading; manipulators to face strict action

Thursday, February 07, 2019

Capital markets watchdog Sebi and stock exchanges have stepped up their live surveillance of intra-day trading in select stocks in the wake of increased volatility seen in these scrips; and any manipulator would face strict regulatory action.

Sources said the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) has asked the exchanges to beef up their vigil for any possible manipulation in stocks  that are witnessing huge volatility and to report any irregularity urgently to the regulator for further action.

These surveillance measures include identification of unusual concentration of positions intra-day, stepping up of the already existing order-level surveillance in addition to the trade-level surveillance, a source familiar with the regulatory move said.

Besides, Sebi will also look at intra-day trading in these stocks through its own surveillance mechanism and take necessary action wherever required.

The regulator has its own state-of-the-art integrated surveillance mechanism in addition to the surveillance systems of the stock exchanges.

Following a directive from Sebi, top exchanges BSE and NSE, on Tuesday night, also asked their respective trading members to enhance their own monitoring of intra-day trading activities of their clients, and proactively report any adverse observation immediately to the bourses.

The stepped-up vigil by the regulator and the exchanges follows huge volatility seen in some stocks amid adverse news flow regarding their promoters and top management, and other issues. The exchanges have already sought explanations from these companies about volatility as well as the media reports.
