TMX Group later released a statement saying they had identified the issue that caused the outage, but did not provide any specifics on the matter.

It will be hard to determine the impact on investors, as some dealers and individuals could have switched their buy and sell orders to other markets that interlist Canadian stocks. Clients can not access their orders. Trading continued on other exchanges throughout Canada, including Nasdaq's exchanges. "Sometimes people feel like these systems are infallible".

The outage was not due to "a hack", a Toronto Stock Exchange spokesman said.

The Ontario Securities Commission said it was in contact with the TMX, adding: "We continue to monitor and watch the situation closely". The stock increased 1.87% or $1.46 during the last trading session, reaching $79.38. Toronto-based TMX first flagged the issue on Twitter shortly after 2 p.m. ET, updating numerous times through the hour to say the issues were persisting and that an investigation was underway.

Before trading stopped, the S&P/TSX Composite Index was up 0.2 percent to 15,668.93, on track for a third straight gain and its highest close since March 21. The company has market cap of $4.41 billion. "It is fatal for them (TMX) for today", said Peggy Bowie, senior trader at Manulife Asset Management.

More than 177 million shares were traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange before trading was shut down, according to FactSet. That's up 19.82 % from last year's $1.11 EPS.

The Canadian Securities Exchange, a much smaller operation under different ownership, was unaffected.
