Stockholm stock trading delayed again
The Stockholm stock exchange finally opened for trading at 2:30pm on Tuesday, the second day in a row trading has been delayed by a technical problem.

“It’s the same log-in problem as yesterday, we’ve been working hard to fix it, but we will come back with more information,” said Nasdaq OMX spokesperson Carl Norell to the TT news agency.

Trading on the exchange was delayed by 40 minutes on Monday due to an update to the Saxess trading system which resulted in customers being unable to access the system.

“It takes a long time for members to log in. We’re working frenetically to solve the problem,” said Norell.

Monday’s glitch also affected trading in Helsinki, Copenhagen, and Oslo. Tuesday’s problems have affected exchanges in Olso, Copenhagen, Reykjavik, and the Baltic states.
