Mexico Stock Exchange Indexes Fail in Latest Bourse Breakdown

Mexican stock investors couldn’t see updates on the benchmark IPC gauge early today, the latest technical breakdown for an exchange that has halted trading at least five times since mid-April because of glitches.

The data feed was re-established at 8:53 a.m. in Mexico City, 23 minutes after the opening, for the IPC and other gauges of Mexico-traded stocks, according to a statement from Bolsa Mexicana de Valores SAB, the operator of the bourse. The IPC fell 0.2 percent to 41,440.04 as of 9:33 a.m. local time.

The Mexican exchange didn’t identify the cause of the issue today, when stocks traded normally even without the updates on indexes. Trading was halted for five hours on Nov. 19 after what Chief Executive Officer Luis Tellez said was the failure of a technological component bought from a unit of NYSE Euronext.
