Trading at Athens Stock Exchange resumes after technical glitch

Trading on the Athens bourse resumed about an hour and 20 minutes after open as the exchange fixed a technical glitch that hampered order routing by member brokers, officials said.

“The system is back,” an official at the exchange said.

The problem had hampered the ODL order routing of member brokers and disrupted their connectivity, with turnover amounting to just 22,000 euros about an hour after the open.

Turnover rose to 1.91 million euros soon after the problem was fixed with the bourse’s benchmark general index trading 0.09 percent lower at 584.8 points.
