Cbot e-trading halted by glitch

Chicago Board of Trade (Cbot) was forced to halt electronic trading in agricultural and financial markets on Thursday morning because of a technical glitch, according to reports.

Allan Schoenberg, director, corporate communications, CME group, told Finextra that all markets will enter pre-open at 11:00am Chicago time. The financial opening will begin at 11:30am, followed by equities and metals at 11:35am and agriculturals at 11:37am.

The Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) is unaffected by the outage.

Earlier this year Cbot's electronic platform crashed three times within a week following an issue with the exchange's trading host, Atos Euronext Market Solutions.

CME bought its fellow exchange last month and plans to migrate Cbot's commodities and equities index products and futures and options to its Globex electronic trading platform in the first quarter of next year.
