FTSE 100 and 250 open delayed, LSE investigating issue

(Sharecast News) - Trading in London stocks will open at 0940 BST, the London Stock Exchange said, having been delayed by a technical issue.
The LSE said in a statement on its website earlier that it was "investigating a potential trading services issue".

The opening of the exchange's Partition 1 and Partition 2 - FTSE 100 and 250 - was delayed, but Partition 3 opened as normal.

In June last year, the LSE opening was delayed by an hour due to a software issue.

Neil Wilson, chief market analyst at Markets.com, said: "These things happen - the last delayed start to trading was only a year ago. Technical glitches are inevitable, frustrating as it is for everyone.

"FTSE futures are trading - and our fair value estimate suggests the cash market will open up strongly around 7,115."
