Toronto Stock Exchange closes early for the day after technical issue halted trading

The Toronto Stock Exchange effectively ended its Thursday session more than 40 minutes early after halting trade earlier in the afternoon due to a technical issue, according to TMX Group, owner of the exchange. The TSX Composite Index, the exchange’s benchmark, was down 1.9% before trading was halted around 2 p.m. ET as coronavirus fears caused global markets to plunge on above-average volume. It later confirmed via Twitter that its cessation would stay in effect for the rest of the day.
