Trade Larger – using ASX closing auctions

Each day at 4:10 ASX runs an auction process to close ASX’s trading day. The closing auction is the single largest trading event throughout the whole day and allows institutional investors to buy and sell large positions in a single point in time.

The auction brings together buyers and sellers into a single trading event that sets the closing price for each security and the S&P/ASX200 index. This significant benchmark is one of the most reported and publicised financial benchmarks in Australia and is arguably a barometer for confidence in the economy.
