On 15th Feb 2019, Dr. Reddy February futures tumbled as much as 30% percent, as the U.S. drug regulator reiterated issues regarding manufacturing standards at its plant in Bachupally, Telangana which accounts for 40-45% of the Dr-Reddy’s US market sales.

Dr Reddy futures made an intraday low of 1874.50 before recovering most of its losses. Most of the market fall happened between 10.00a.m – 10.15a.m yeh 5minutes it is all takes to do the maximum damage.

Before Getting into how liquidity crisis happened in DR Reddy. Lets get to know what is actually liquidity crisis.

The order book is very liquid when a great amount of orders is stored in each side of the order book (Limit Buy orders and Limit Sell Orders) and almost all quotes behind the best one are occupied. In such a situation a market order produces a small perturbation of the system and then a small price adjustment. On the contrary when a liquidity crisis occurs , the order book is characterized by few orders stored and by a large average gap between adjacent orders. In this case even a market order with a small volume can produce a dramatic price fluctuation of several ticks
