DEFINITION of 'Kakaku Yusen'

INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Kakaku Yusen'

The Kakaku Yusen system serves as a tiebreaker for trades that are received or placed at the same time. This system is complementary to the exchange's other tiebreaker mechanism, which gives priority to an earlier-placed trade when two trades come in at the same price. The Kakaku Yusen system is opposite of how trades are filled on American exchanges.
