CMA is very interested in OTC platform success, following efforts and preparations in cooperation with Bourse Kuwait, Kuwait Clearing Company and brokers, which will represent a quantum leap in the market history to end an era of trading shares outside regulatory control and audit.
OTC trading platform is intended to provide regulation and control, and to ensure that the funds cycle will be under control, as the formal market mechanisms will not apply to that platform, especially the units for buying, selling or other controls related to volumes.
According to sources, external systems shall not be accepted for electronic OTC trading platform, as the market will not recognize or any transactions outside the platform. Brokerage firms will execute external deals or use the old system.
