What is ASM framework in stock market and how it affects traders? Explained
ASM framework stock market, NSE, BSE: Stocks that are shortlisted for inclusion in the ASM list serve as a warning to investors about unusual price movement.
ASM framework stock market, NSE, BSE: The National Stock Exchange has placed three Adani Group stocks -- Adani Enterprises, Adani Power and Adani Wilmar under the short-term additional surveillance measure (ST-ASM) framework Stage 1 to check short selling, effective from Thursday, March 9.
The development came after NSE removed Adani Enterprises from the surveillance just the earlier day, after remaining under observation for nearly a month’s time.
It means that intraday trading will require a 100 per cent upfront margin. When a stock is placed under the ASM framework, traders are not allowed to avail intraday leverage and their 100 per cent traded value gets blocked as margin. This is done to check risky and speculative trades, thus minimising the loss.
Additional Surveillance Measure
ASM is part of the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) and the Exchanges initiative to enhance market integrity and safeguard the interest of investors. ASM concerns are based on objective parameters with price, volume variation, volatility etc on Thursday.
