In last two months, this is the second time when BSE has to face some similar type of technical glitch. Such outages do not augur well for the BSE, which has been trying to take on the NSE by introducing new segments such as options trading.

However, for the traders who mostly undertake intra-day trading shut-down of BSE markets is bad news.
