Traders on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) got to start the weekend early as a technical issue forced the exchange to close shortly after 2pm.

The TMX Group, which operates the TSX and other exchanges, said: "TMX has decided to shut down all markets for the remainder of the day, Trading will not resume today, including market on close. We apologize for the inconvenience."  

The technical issues became apparent after the lunchtime trading session, with traders and investors learning of the problems via the group’s Twitter feed.

TMX said the TSX/TSXV exchanges will be using the last boardlot traded prices for the purpose of determining closing prices and also for the purpose of boardlot determination for Monday, April 30, 2018.

A complete list of closing prices will be distributed this afternoon, TMX said..
