The Tokyo Stock Exchange resumed trading in one day, which had been completely suspended due to system failure.

The Tokyo Stock Exchange, which is part of the Japan Exchange Group, has normally started trading all stocks, including stocks, which were suspended all day yesterday, from 9 am, the opening time today.

In addition to about 3,700 listed stocks, trading is normalized to all stocks that have been traded on the Tokyo Exchange, such as the Listed Index Fund (ETF).

Various indices such as the Nikkei 225 average stock price, which is the representative index of the Japanese stock market, and the topic index reflecting the stock price of all stocks of the Tokyo stock market, were calculated normally.

The Tokyo Stock Exchange stopped buying and selling all stocks all day long yesterday because the backup system was not working in a situation where there was a failure in the system that delivers market information such as stock prices.

In the aftermath, the Sapporo, Nagoya, and Fukuoka Stock Exchanges using the same system were also closed the day before.

It was the first time since November 2005 that trading of all stocks was stopped due to a system failure at the Tokyo Stock Exchange, and it was the first time since the introduction of the current computer system in 1999.

Earlier, the exchange determined that the system failure was due to a hardware failure, and after replacing the relevant device, it confirmed that there was no problem with the trading system and decided to resume the transaction.
