One of the nicest parts of writing a post here is the search for a picture. However, sometimes the last picture says it all. Jeez, not this shit again. Thursday and friday parts of the option market in Amsterdam have been shut down again as a result of technical problems. It was embarrassing in the beginning of the month, now it’s getting outright painful.
The exchange couldn’t handle the massive order flow, according to a spokesman. Traders can confirm this can’t be true. There wasn’t more trading as usual at time of last outage. In contrary, problems occurred after the expiration of the first month futures.
But hey, at least the exchange has got a new brand new logo.
