Real-time Market Access. Screen-based trading allows Trading Participants to gain access to live bid and offer prices as well as the ability to directly transact with other players in the market.
Access to Market Valuation Data. The available price and trade data from the PDEx Fixed-Income market also form the basis for key interest rate benchmarks used for daily market valuation of Philippine debt securities.
Trading in a Registered Market. The Self-Regulatory Organization (SRO) overseeing the trading rules of PDEx provides the Trading Participants a level playing field, under which to conduct their trading activities. More on the roles of the SRO here.
Settlement via Delivery vs. Payment. Once the Trading Participant joins the Exchange, they have to arrange clearing and settlement facilities through PDTC for fixed-income trades.
