Australia’s ASX Ltd., which had its biggest disruption since 2011 in September, said some single-session options can’t be traded because of a manual error.

Trading, first set to resume Thursday evening, won’t be possible until 5:10 p.m. Friday, the Sydney-based exchange said on its website. Overnight and intra-day options on ASX 3-year and 10-year Treasury bond futures can’t change hands for the Dec. 15 and Dec. 16 trade dates. Separately, ASX said it corrected the settlement price for a futures contract on New Zealand bank bills.
