Three-Hour Foul-Up Halts France’s CAC 40, Holland’s AEX

Updated on

The CAC 40 Index of France’s largest companies failed to calculate for more than three hours this morning after Euronext NV suffered a technical incident.

The glitch also stopped the national benchmark indexes for the Netherlands, Belgium and Portugal -- and their respective derivatives gauges -- from opening at the normal time. Trading in individual companies such as Total SA and ING Groep NV was unaffected by the fault, the company said in a statement. All four equity indexes began calculating at 12:25 p.m. Paris time.
