Hours of Operation
tpSEF will operate on days which are business days in Singapore, London and New
York. For purposes of determining if a day is a New York business day, the New York
Stock Exchange must be open and such day may not be a SIFMA-recommended full day
holiday. Days subject to early close in any jurisdiction will constitute business
Days are calculated by reference to Eastern Prevailing Time in the United States.
On any day on which tpSEF is operating, it will be closed from 5:30 p.m. and 6:30
p.m. Eastern Time, but will be open the remaining twenty-three hours.
tpSEF reserves the right to close on different days or times if requested or required
to do so by the CFTC or NFA, or where there is a force majeure event, such
as hurricanes, flooding, terrorist attack or otherwise, affecting the above-mentioned
location generally, any relevant market infrastructure (such as DCOs, payment and
clearing systems or SDRs) or tpSEFs' facilities in particular.
