KUALA LUMPUR (July 16): Trading platforms have encountered a technical glitch in the afternoon trading session today.
It is rumoured that Bursa Malaysia's trading system has hung due to a massive turnover in trading orders.
At the time of writing, price quotes across online platforms have frozen. As at 3.30pm, trading volume was at 9.28 billion, while turnover stood at RM4.14 billion.
According to an SMS text message to clients from Kenanga Investment Bank, there is an industry-wide service disruption connecting to Bursa Malaysia since 3.30pm.
"Currently all orders have been rejected by Bursa Malaysia. Please be patient and we will update further on this," it said.
