Software bugs force ASX market suspension

07 November 2002  |  3137 views  |  0 Software bugs force ASX market suspension

Australian Stock Exchange's equities market was suspended for approximately three hours today following an apparent software problem during the start of trading.

The bugs affected the ASX Seats trading system during the latter stages of the opening sequence of the equities market. This led to potential corruption of key trade and order data, forcing the suspension of the market.

ASX says it reviewed all systems' status before trading was restored three hours later.

The Exchange adds that it is conducting a thorough investigation of the outage, and that market participants will be advised of the result in due course.
