According to a notice on its official website on October 1, the parent company of the Tokyo Stock Exchange, the Japanese stock exchange group, said the trading on the Tokyo Stock Exchange was cancelled due to a trading system failure, Xinhua reported. This is the first time that the exchange has cancelled all day trading due to a system failure, according to the website of Japan economic news.

The market information that has been issued on that day is invalid, and it is uncertain when to resume trading.

The occurrence of exchange failure is very passive for investors, which may lead to the investors orders not being closed or abnormal market conditions after the trading orders are opened, which generally are borne by the investors themselves, and the probability of exchange claims is very low.

Industry insiders believe that frequent technical risks will reduce the credibility of the exchange, and investors may choose to stay away and choose other exchanges. Maintaining the security of trading is one of the core competitiveness of the exchange.
