 Market Trial 

 

 Introduction

The Market Trial is a full function pilot demonstration of Market and System Operations processes prior to market Go-Live. 

It provides an opportunity for Participants to fully vet their processes and systems, while experiencing the market in a risk-free environment prior to the opening of the market in May 2018.


The overall objectives of the Market Trial are as follows:
  • Provide a risk free environment where Participants can freely exercise their systems and processes and experience market operations and daily activities
  • Provide Participants with an opportunity to test their own new or modified internal systems and processes
  • Provide a means by which to measure successful execution of market operations processes
  • Facilitate a smooth transition into the live market
  • Identify required areas for improvement that can be addressed prior to launch
