Full-fledged trading resumed on the National Stock Exchange of India (NSE) during the mid-afternoon session on Monday after a technical glitch impacted trading during an early-morning session. The stock exchange said that the technical glitch impacted trading on its Cash and Future and Option (F&O) segment during the early-morning trade session, and that the glitch has been resolved.
The NSE said that all its market segments were operational as of 12.30 p.m. An earlier statement from the bourse said: “Due to technical reasons in cash market, trading has been stopped in both Cash and F&O segment of the NSE. The technical team of NSE is looking into the issue.” However, stock brokers contacted by IANS said that though the trading has resumed, some minor issues in the Cash segment remained.
“It has restarted now. The problem seems to be resolved. However, some minor display issues on the cash segment are still there. The Futures segment is operating seamlessly,” a stock broker told IANS. According to the broker, the problem about price updation and “placing of orders” started during the early phase of the day’s trade session. “Afterwards, we were informed by the NSE that trade will restart at 10.15 a.m. and then at 11.00 a.m.,” the broker said.
The technical glitch was noticed after the NSE stock rates were not in tandem with BSE (Bombay Stock Exchange) scrip prices.
