MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - A bomb threat was called
into Mexico City's stock market Monday, Mexico's Milenio
television reported, but traders said operations at the bourse
Mexican police were not immediately able to confirm or rule
out such a threat.
There is no longer floor trading at the Mexican stock
exchange but the building, located in a central area of the
Mexican capital, is a prominent landmark.
"Up to now nothing has happened with the market," said
Gerardo Roman, head of stock trading at the exchange.
The peso slightly extended losses on the news, while
stock trading appeared to be unaffected.
