TSX and TMX to implement “Cancel on Disconnect” functionality

Further to its Notice of Proposed Changes of October 14, 2011, the TSX and the TMX have proposed the implementation of a “Cancel on Disconnect” functionality to allow for the automated cancellation of orders in the event of involuntary loss of connectivity between the TMX and the client site. According to the TSX and TMX, this functionality, which will be available for all gateway sessions connecting to TSX, TSXV and TMX Select, will assist traders in mitigating risks associated with having open orders exposed in their books that cannot be managed when there is an involuntary loss of connectivity.

The TSX and TMX received no comments on its October 14, 2011 proposal and have announced that they are expected to publish a notice indicating the intended implementation date of the proposed functionality.
