Zerodha and IIFL Experience Outages: Orders Frozen and Derivative Issues Arise

On June 21, Zerodha’s broking platform encountered another technical glitch, causing significant disruption for traders. During this period, the platform was completely frozen, affecting traders’ ability to execute orders. Notably, stocks like India Cement, which were no longer under the F&O ban, erroneously appeared as restricted, further complicating trading activities.

However, the issues seem to have been resolved swiftly as the platform resumed normal operations after the brief outage. This incident underscores the challenges faced by online trading platforms in maintaining seamless service amidst high market volatility and regulatory changes. Traders are advised to remain vigilant and monitor updates from Zerodha to navigate such technical disruptions effectively.

The glitch disrupted trading activities on Zerodha’s platform during a critical market period marked by heightened investor activity and significant market movements. Such incidents highlight the vulnerability of online trading platforms to technical issues during times of increased market volatility and event-driven trading.
