All Indies trades cancelled at end of play

The most recent Junior Market Indies Pharma started trading on Wednesday and closed with a gain of 80 cents to closed with a gain of 53 percent on the IPO price of $1.50. The stock opened at $2.50 but drifting lower during the day to close at $2.30, well that is what the stock exchange trading platform showed.
None of that mattered in the end as all 774,145 shares that was recorded as trading were cancelled.
But there is something awfully wrong wat the JSE, this problem has been occurring ever since the exchange introduced the current trading platform. First, the rule that limit prices to no more than 30 percent in a day is outmoded. Secondly, just about all new junior market listings have traded well above the limit on opening day sending a clear message that the limit at least for new listings made no sense. The exchange management is clearly behind the market place and need to step up the demands of the market.
