NZX trading halted on system glitch

Trading on the NZX has been halted for 20 minutes due to a system error.

The stock market operator advised at 10:55 am that trading would halt across all boards and reopen again at 11:15 am.

"All NZX Markets have been halted due to trading system messaging issues. A restart to the message gateway will be completed and the market reopened once participant connectivity has

been confirmed," NZX Client and Market Services said in an announcement to the market.

Yesterday evening the market closed at 5:45pm, 15 minutes later than normal, after a glitch in its trading platform software, X-stream, a broker told BusinessDesk. 

Trading has resumed at 10:20am
