Four European Stock Indexes Resume Trading After Glitch

MarketWatch Pulse

The main indexes in Paris, Amsterdam, Brussels and Lisbon resumed trading on Thursday, after failing to open at the usual time of 9 a.m. local time. The failure was due a technical incident, a spokesperson from exchange operator Euronext said. In late-morning action, France's CAC 40 index was up 0.1% at 4,378.16, the Dutch AEX index rose 0.3% to 425.34. Belgium's BEL 20 gained 0.1% at 3,268.45 and Portugal's PSI 20 rose 0.6% to 5,322.53. While the indexes were all closed, the individual stocks in those indexes had been trading as usual.
