NZX, the financial markets operator, said its markets will operate as normal today after its trading platform suffered an outage late yesterday.

The Wellington-based company said its stock market opened as normal at 10am this morning, and its derivatives market had been open since 2am. 

Trading was hindered yesterday by an outage on NZX's platform with data issues affecting all vendors. The outage disrupted stocks, indices, futures and options trading, according to Reuters updates and was first reported at 3.26pm. 

"NZX is in direct contact with its market participants and is satisfied that the issue experienced in relation to yesterday’s trading outage has been resolved," the company said in a statement to BusinessDesk this morning.
