A fault at the London Stock Exchange prevented blue-chip British companies from trading on Friday for over an hour, the longest such outage in 8 years. What was called a “technical software issue” kept FTSE 100 (UK:UKX)  and FTSE 250 (UK:MCX)  companies from opening until 9:40 a.m. local time. A glitch at the New York Stock Exchange impacted market pricing data on Monday, and on Tuesday, data providers showed incorrect closing prices after what Nasdaq said was a brokerage executing trades on the wrong day’s closing prices.
