London Stock Market down

The City of London stock market failed to open for business today. Blighty has a reputation for delayed trains which frustrates commuters on a daily basis. When it comes to the apparent crown jewels (where Brexit is concerned), the City of London runs like clockwork. Well today, it looks like an embarrassing glitch to the system. The normal go-to reason these days is poor old Putin and his army of hackers. No doubt some excuse will be made but either way, pre-Brexit, this is a very embarrassing moment for the LSE. For what it worth, I think a few magnets needed a tweak under the table and caused a few issues which have clearly taken longer to resolve than first thought. Punters will be invited back in shortly. For those on leverage or over exposed the delays could be costly as time stops for no one.
