Toronto Stock Exchange Trading Is Halted on Glitch (Update1)
By John Kipphoff

Dec. 17 (Bloomberg) -- TMX Group Inc. halted trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange and TSX Venture Exchange following a computer glitch that prevented quotes from being disseminated.
There is no estimate for when trading will resume, Sylvin Gauthier, a TMX spokesman in Montreal, said in a phone interview.

The nation’s stock benchmark, the Standard & Poor’s/TSX Composite Index, has tumbled 37 percent in 2008. That would be the steepest annual decline since 1931. An average of $5.79 billion in shares changed hands each day this year, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
