The opening of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange’s equity market was delayed on Monday because of a technical glitch.
“Due to a network issue, the Equity Market opening will be delayed this morning. All other JSE markets are not affected,” the JSE Group said on its Twitter page at 9.20am.
“We will advise once the issue has been resolved.”
Just before 11am, the JSE tweeted that its team was continuing to investigate the network issue with its service providers.
“We know this affects our clients and apologise for this.
“Even though the JSE Equity Market is not yet open, members can still trade offshore and report the trades to the JSE trading system,” it said.
According to the JSE’s website, the equity market has been in operation for more than 120 years.
It provides companies and investors with listing and investment opportunities. It has South African listed companies, dual listed companies from across the globe and a variety of listed products.
