Singapore Exchange (SGX) on Tuesday said it would reintroduce lunch break and widen the minimum bid spreads from November 13, 2017.

The equities market will break from 12.00 pm to 1.00 pm from November 13, 2017, the exchange said in a notice after a public consultation exercise in March.

In addition, the minimum bid size for relevant securities in the $1.00 to $1.99 price range will be increased to $0.01 from the current $0.005 and the forced order range for relevant securities will be widened to 30 bids from current bids, SGX said in a statement released after the market hours.
