The Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) said on Monday morning that the JSE Equity Market is delayed in opening due to certain order information not being visible in the Equity Market trading system.
In order to rectify this, the JSE has initiated a restart of the trading system.
"The JSE is working tirelessly to get the market into continuous trading. The JSE’s Derivatives market is not impacted," the JSE told Fin24 by mid-morning.
On Friday global markets, including the JSE, retreated after the US announced tariffs on $50bn worth of Chinese goods and services.
In Monday morning trade Europe's main stock markets opened mixed on Monday, with London higher on solid share price gains for heavyweight miners, while Frankfurt and Paris dropped.
London's benchmark FTSE 100 index rose 0.1% to 7 639.9 points in initial deals.
In the eurozone, Frankfurt's DAX 30 fell 0.3% to 12 969.51 points and the Paris CAC 40 lost 0.3% to 5 584.3, compared with the closing levels on Friday.
