Singapore Exchange’s (SGX) Derivatives market opened per normal today with pre-opening at 0730 hours and continuous trading at 0740 hours. This follows a temporary suspension of trading yesterday, 3 August, at 1956 hours after a number of trading participants experienced problems connecting to the Derivatives market due to an intermittent technical failure. The failure required SGX to switch certain services to backup systems to ensure that all members were fully able to connect and trade the Derivatives market.
Fair, orderly and continuous trading resumed successfully with an opening auction at 2130 hours and continuous matching at 2145 hours.
We apologise for the inconvenience caused.
