Buy orders for securities traded on the Shanghai and Shenzhen Stock Exchanges must be in 「board lots」. A 「board lot」 is 100 shares. Odd lot trading is only available for sell orders and all odd lots should be sold in one single order. It is common that a board lot buy order may be matched with different odd lot sell orders, resulting in odd lot trades. It should be noted that unlike Hong Kong, board lot and odd lot orders are both matched on the same platform on SSE and SZSE, and subject to the same share price. For Northbound trading, there is no manual trade facility. The maximum order size is 1 million shares and the tick size is uniformly set at RMB 0.01.
Only certain securities (A shares) are eligible for Northbound Trading and only limit orders will be accepted. To search for A shares please visit here
Please read the 「Information Book for Investors」 published by the Hong Kong Stock Exchange to familiarize yourself with the rules and risks of Northbound Trading.
