France's CAC 40 Resumes After Tech Glitch

Trading of stocks in France's CAC 40 index resumed at 1045 GMT on Monday after a technical problem led Euronext to suspend trading for about 30 minutes.

Euronext , which operates the CAC 40 , said there had been a problem with a system which calculates the value of the index based on the prices of its individual stock components.

The incident came after two other incidents on Euronext last week, which led to disruptions in trading. Technical problems in Belgium and the Netherlands caused a suspension on June 21 and a separate glitch on June 20 caused the market opened an hour late.
