Temporary trade restrictions at Stockholm SE

The Stockholm Stock Exchange recorded yet another day of heavy losses on Friday. As trading started, the main index took a plunge of more than eight percent. Because of the continuing turbulences the stock exchange temporarily imposed so-called fixed market regulations to prevent a free fall of stocks. The restrictions were lifted a few hours later when trading appeared less chaotic.

A stock exchange spokesman said similar emergency steps had been taken after the terror attacks of 9/11 in 2001 and the London bombings of July 2005.
