Two European equity benchmarks stopped calculating for 40 minutes on Wednesday as index provider Stoxx Ltd. suffered from a technical problem with incoming data.
The Stoxx Europe 600 Index and the Euro Stoxx 50 Index -- two of the most popular gauges of European shares -- stopped calculating from 12:40 p.m. to 1:20 p.m. London time.
“There’s a problem with the exchange data,” Stoxx spokeswoman Andrea Weidemann said. Stoxx is majority owned by Deutsche Boerse AG.
Both indexes restarted calculating at 1:21 p.m.
