The London Stock Exchange was hit by a glitch at its open at 8 a.m. London time on Thursday. A spokeswoman for the U.K.’s main bourse said it was working on providing more information about the outage. Data provider FactSet was showing no change in prices for London-listed shares and in levels for equity benchmarks such as the blue-chip FTSE 100 and mid-cap FTSE 250 . The LSE said on its website that the open of trading, which begins with a process called uncrossing, is now scheduled for 9 a.m. London time.
