The aim of the testing is to use the feedback from participants to verify the usability and possible applications of the data.

Tokyo Stock Exchange, Inc. (TSE) today announces that it is starting Proof of Concept (PoC) testing for limited public distribution of margin transaction and short selling data.

This PoC is set to provide samples of TSE internal margin transaction and short selling data, with its aim being to use the feedback from participants to verify the usability and possible applications of the data. TSE will also consider developing a service to distribute this data, based on the results of the PoC.

The data comprises daily trading value and trading volume by issue aggregated using flags set at time of order by investors:

  • Trading value and volume of buy and sell orders are aggregated by new margin, liquidation of margin, and other.
  • Trading value and volume of sell orders are aggregated by short selling (with and without price restriction) and cash selling.

The provided data is from 2014 to 2018 and does not include recent data.

The PoC testing participants must be trading participants of TSE or Osaka Exchange, Inc., clearing participants of Japan Securities Clearing Corporation, or any other corporation deemed appropriate by TSE. Prospective participants have to apply for both the PoC Program for Utilizing Securities Data and this PoC Testing program separately.
