Tokyo Stock Exchange To resume trading today October 2, 4:39
The Tokyo Stock Exchange will resume trading of stocks, etc., which was suspended all day due to system trouble, on the 2nd.
Investors not only in Japan but also overseas are paying attention to the resumption of trading scheduled from 9:00 am due to the unusual situation of the total suspension of transactions on the stock exchange, which is an important infrastructure of the market.
The Tokyo Stock Exchange suspended trading of all stocks throughout the day due to a problem with the system that distributes information such as stock prices on the morning of the 1st.
As a result, the Nagoya, Fukuoka, and Sapporo stock exchanges, which use the same system, also suspended all transactions throughout the day, affecting a wide range of domestic and foreign investors and companies.
Regarding the cause, TSE claims that a device called "arrowhead", which is a "shared disk device" of the entire transaction system, failed and backup did not work.
As a result, important information for investors such as stock prices could not be distributed, and it was decided to suspend transactions all day to avoid confusion for investors.
TSE says that it will replace the broken equipment and start buying and selling stocks as usual on the 2nd.
However, due to the unusual situation of a total suspension of transactions on the stock exchange, which is an important infrastructure of the market, investors not only in Japan but also overseas investors will resume trading scheduled from 9 am on the 2nd. I am paying attention.
