NZ share trading delayed by ‘system issue’, NZX says

Trading on the New Zealand stock exchange has been delayed by a "system issue", market operator NZX said in a one-sentence statement.

The announcement was made on the NZX website at 9:55am - five minutes before trading as due to begin. It later said trading will begin at 10:15am.

"NZX advises that due to system issues, the start of trading will be delayed this morning until further notice," it said.

That marks the first outage since Aug. 16, when NZX suspended trading following a 6.2 magnitude earthquake that rocked Wellington.
