The price depth information is transmitted in real time through the new TCP/IP information feed in the bandwidth of 128Kbps. The new feed went live last month.

The information will be made available to retail and institutional investors on a subscription basis via information vendors.

"This new service is part of our ongoing efforts to meet the needs of investors," said Roger Lee, HKEx Senior Vice President of E-business and Information Services.

"The wider distribution of price depth information adds to market transparency and can help investors in their analysis and decision making," Mr Lee added.
