London Stock Exchange – Update to market participants

London Stock Exchange takes its responsibility to ensure the orderly functioning of markets and continuity of services for its customers and other stakeholders very seriously

We have robust business continuity arrangements in place, which are regularly tested, to ensure the safe and orderly functioning of our business and are in close contact with regulators and stakeholders around the world so that we can continue to adjust our response as needed.

London Stock Exchange continues to operate as normal and there are no plans to suspend trading on our markets. It is important that markets remain open to support companies who will continue to need access to capital and to ensure pricing is conducted in a fair and transparent manner for retail and institutional investors who need ongoing access to liquidity. 

We recognise and understand the challenges faced by many market participants navigating the current volatile market conditions and have a variety of measures in place to ensure an orderly and fair market.

In volatile markets, order books can be subject to rapid price movements. Our Market Operations team employs advanced surveillance mechanisms to ensure that all of London Stock Exchange’s markets operate in a fair and orderly manner. These include price monitoring functionality – ‘circuit breakers’ – which you can find more about here.
