The algorithm for ranking and matching orders received is based firstly on the best price (i.e., highest bid and lowest ask have the highest priority), and secondly on the time the order is received in HKATS. Quotes from Market Makers are also subject to the same ranking, matching, and pricing methodologies. The HKEx matching engine is located in Hong Kong.
