Except with the prior written approval of SGX-ST in each instance, no Trading Member shall, for any account in which it has an interest or for the account of any customer, effect an opening transaction in an Option of any Class dealt on SGX-ST if that Trading Member has reason to believe that as a result of such transaction the Trading Member or its customer would, acting alone or in concert with others directly or indirectly, hold or control or be obligated in respect of an aggregate position (whether short or long) in excess of the individual position limits set out as follows:—

(1) 2,000 Options on the same side of the market where the issued capital of the issuer of the underlying securities is less than 400 million shares. The aggregate position limit for both sides of the market shall accordingly be 4,000 Options.
(2) 3,000 Options on the same side of the market where the issued capital of the issuer of the underlying securities is between 400 million and 600 million shares (both numbers inclusive). The aggregate position limit for both sides of the market shall accordingly be 6,000 Options.
(3) 4,000 Options on the same side of the market where the issued capital of the issuer of the underlying securities is more than 600 million shares. The aggregate position limit for both sides of the market shall accordingly be 8,000 Options.
