Market making specifications

Market makers have an important role in ensuring that buyers and sellers can transact in markets. Market makers receive incentives from ASX when making markets in accordance with the market making specifications under the applicable schemes. The specifications set out below are a summary of select terms in the market making incentive agreements between ASX and relevant maker makers, and are not intended to be a definitive or comprehensive summary of those agreements.

*All references to time are to Australian Eastern Standard Time or Australian Eastern Daylight Time (as applicable) unless otherwise stated. 

The ASX ETO market making incentive scheme provides liquidity across the market, so that investors are more easily able to price and value options positions.

For further information, see the ASX ETO Market Making Scheme guide and market maker obligations.
