CSE to probe technical failure

The Colombo Stock Exchange is to probe the technical failure that caused the exchange to halt trading on the 29th of January. The failure was linked to a system failure of a vendor.

Trading was halted at 12:07 as the situation was brought to the attention of the exchange. The failure prevented an estimated 14 brokers from accessing the stock market. The CSE system remained operational but the closure was deemed necessary to ensure that the market was accessible by all participants. Trading was re-enabled at 12:45.
