Definition: Kakaku Yusen
This system of pricing is used in the Tokyo stock exchange. This pricing system gives higher priority to the lower priced trade in comparison to the higher priced trade. It acts as a tie breaker in cases where 2 trades are placed at the same time. In such cases a lower priced trade is given higher priority.
This system is like a priority based system where a trade which is placed earlier is given a higher priority when there are 2 trades which are of same price.
There are two trades which are placed at the same time. One trade is of lower price while another trade is of higher price. Then when we have to decide priority according to the Kakaku Yusen then the trade which has the lower price will be given higher priority while the trade which has higher price will be given less priority.
