    Any price change that is not attributed to a trade (such as ex-right, ex-dividend etc.) is disregarded during the period the standard in subparagraphs 1 and 3 of the preceding paragraph is being calculated or when the closing price standard is being compared over the last six business days (including the sixth business day) as mentioned in subparagraph 3 of the preceding paragraph, in respect of TWSE or TPEx listed securities.
