Trading will also cease if either of the two active months is bid at the upper limit or offered at the lower limit for two minutes without trading.

Trading will not cease if the limit is reached during the final 20 minutes of a day’s trading. If the limit is reached during the final half hour of trading, trading will resume no later than 10 minutes before the normal closing time.
