ASX blunder leads market to barely open

Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 share index barely traded today, being open for just over 20 mins before a “glitch” shut the market down for the day. Despite this, the ASX200 was up 1.20% and trading is expected to commence as scheduled at 10 am tomorrow.

This marks the worst technical glitch since 2016 and therefore a day to forget for the ASX.
