The issue appears to have occurred after the ASX carried out migration activities for its ‘ASX Trade’ system on Saturday, with go-live scheduled for this morning at 2:25 am.
The ASX explains:
“The ‘ASX Trade’ is the central system that includes order entry and amendment, trade generation and trade reporting. It also provides the functionality used by ASX Trading Operations to establish and maintain the trading environment.”
It has stated it will notify customers at least 30 minutes in advance of any session change.
