What's going on with the FTSE today? (7Nov)

What started happening at 16.00ish? The values are jumping up and down by 100+ points??

It’s a technical hitch. Same problems on Bloomberg. The futures price is holding steady and showing the FTSE down about 1%.

So they’re probably on the line to the support centre in Bangalore about now?
(Pressing random buttons in the hope that gets them to speak to an operator).

UK: Hello…yes…our stock market is broken.
India: Sir do you have a customer reference number
UK: I’m losing millions here!
India: Sir I’m going to put you through to our web conferencing facilities where you can chat with other stock market customers


Looks like they were on hold for an hour and a half!
