Reform of Stock Market Activity in Ukraine




commodity exchange, accreditation, exchange trading mechanism, exchange agreement, monitoring


The article examines in detail measures to improve stock market activity in Ukraine, their prerequisites, and consequences. Currently, exchange trading takes place exclusively in the electronic system. The activities of the exchanges are aimed at administering the electronic trading system to ensure its functioning. The mechanisms for carrying out exchange trades have been unified, and the procedure for conducting trades, accreditation, monitoring the execution of contracts, and sanctioning violators has been improved, making it impossible to engage in shadow deals or hide sums to avoid taxes. The exchange acts as a guarantor of the execution of transactions. These measures should contribute to the transparency and formalization of economic transactions, increasing their reliability. Additionally, these improvements are expected to enhance investor confidence, attracting both domestic and international investments. By reducing the opportunities for fraudulent activities and tax evasion, the Ukrainian stock market can achieve greater stability and credibility. Furthermore, the standardization and modernization of trading procedures can streamline operations, making the market more efficient and accessible. This, in turn, could lead to increased market participation and liquidity, fostering a more vibrant and dynamic financial environment. Overall, these reforms are crucial for the sustainable development of Ukraine's stock market and its integration into the global financial system.
