Canada stock markets shut down due to exchange issues -TMX

UPDATE 2-Canada stock markets shut down due to exchange issues -TMX

TMX Group said in a statement Saturday evening the hardware failure occurred in the central storage appliance of the trading system.

Canada's stock market was downed on Friday due to technical issues which lead to numerous stock markets participants being unable to participate in the main exchange.

Macron believes Trump will exit nuclear deal with Iran
Araqchi said the accord is, "first and foremost a security agreement" whose failure will "weaken the non-proliferation system". The third line of it states: 'Iran commits to never developing nuclear weapons .' There is no time restriction on that.

Toronto's main stock exchange operator, TMX Group Ltd, made a decision to shut down the market after the technical issues came into play and through several Tweets on Twitter, said that all those participating in the market on Friday were "equally impacted and are unable to connect to our exchanges". Trading is expected to resume Monday. Also affected were the TSX Venture Exchange, a market for small capitalization stocks, and the TSX Alpha Exchange, a market geared to active traders.

Investors can still trade stocks and ETFs that are listed on the TSX and TSXV on other Canadian venues, such as on Nasdaq Canada or on the Canadian Securities Exchange. Trading normally closes at 4 p.m. Canadian equity trading is spread out across a variety of trading platforms, as it does in the USA, meaning that when one exchange breaks, others can pick up the slack.

Giants select UTEP's Will Hernandez with second-round pick
There was speculation earlier in the offseason that Cleveland was considering Barkley with the first pick. Wah was Whitehall's starting running back in 2012, before Barkley took over.

Craig Basinger, chief investment officer at Richardson GMP, said Friday's trading problems show the upside of having multiple exchanges. "If you go back a number of years when everything was traded on Toronto then we really would be shut down".

The S&P/TSX Index was up 31 points or 0.2 per cent at 1:39 p.m., the last time Friday's trading volume was updated on all charts.

Ford will drop Focus, Fusion and other sedans for North American market
There will be some retooling to prepare for the new SUV models, but there is no plan to shut down the plant, Felker said. The Focus nameplate will live on only thanks to an all-new crossover variant called the Focus Active coming next year.

"TMX is committed to applying the lessons learned from this incident to help us prevent such issues from recurring in the future", TMX Group CEO Lou Eccleston said. The NYSE said Wednesday afternoon that Amazon.com and Alphabet wouldn't trade for the rest of the day, citing a technical problem.
