LSE’s systems stretched to breaking point


Share trading on the LSE apparently went wacky today with the wrong
prices appearing and showing data higher on the day when today’s
session has been lower.  Maybe it’s related to the new systems, MiFID,
algo’s and hedge funds … or maybe it’s because banks were coming
under pressure from the credit crunch once again, with RBS and Barclays
share prices down.  Whatever the cause, it’s bad timing as Chi-x call me every other day to say how great they’re doing.
