Market Infrastructure Intact After Earthquake Rocks Japan


The magnitude-8.9 earthquake that struck 231 miles northeast of Tokyo at 2:46 p.m. local time earlier today has led to massive destruction in the region but has left Japan's market infrastructure largely intact and functioning.

The Tokyo Commodities Exchange (Tocom) and the Osaka Securities Exchange (OSE) announced that they plan to hold their usual night trading sessions this evening. OSE officials also expect that trading will start as normal on Monday, March 14.
