Does Japan stock exchanges trade in lots? How many shares is a lot?

Postby reading22 » Sat Nov 24, 2012 3:26 am

Yes they do, and it is a real pain to trade odd lots. 1000 is the most common round lot (just like in Hong Kong and Singapore). That said, it can be as low as 1 for stocks with high share prices (for example NTT was 596000 Yen the other day, and has a round lot of 1), and 100 shows up maybe 1/3rd of the time.

Here is a breakdown for the Tokyo Stock Exchange: http://www.tse.or.jp/english/faq/list/trading/t_e.html .

If you need to look it up for specific stocks on the TSE, you can do it here:

If you need it for all securities there, just roll through the 6 or so possibilities for lot size.

For Osaka Stock Exchange listed stocks, you can find it here: http://www.ose.or.jp/e/data/data_lc/listc.pdf .

Hope this helps!
