The type of order held in an order management facility of a trading venue pending disclosure for which pre-trade transparency obligations may be waived is an order which:
is intended to be disclosed to the order book operated by the trading venue and is contingent on objective conditions that are pre-defined by the system's protocol;
cannot interact with other trading interests prior to disclosure to the order book operated by the trading venue;
once disclosed to the order book, interacts with other orders in accordance with the rules applicable to orders of that kind at the time of disclosure.
By way of derogation from paragraph 1(b), where a portion of a quantity of an aggressive order has executed against the disclosed quantity of a reserve order and other disclosed orders in the order book of a trading venue, the non-disclosed quantity of the reserve order held in the trading venue’s order management facility is a type of order for which pre-trade disclosure may be waived and which can be executed against the remainder of the quantity of the aggressive order.1
A reserve order as referred to in paragraph 1A shall be considered a limit order consisting of a disclosed order relating to a portion of a quantity in the order book of a trading venue and a non-disclosed order relating to the remainder of the quantity where the non-disclosed quantity is held in the order management facility of a trading venue.1
An aggressive order as referred to in paragraph 1A shall be considered a limit order that has been disclosed in the order book of a trading venue and which initiates trades.1
