5:00 pm Expert's take: "It was a bizarre situation faced by clients which actually affected not just arbitrageurs but across the vertical. The problem actually got worse when there was no clear statement, guidance from NSE about the same. NSE did clarify but it was way too late around 10 AM," Mustafa Nadeem, CEO, Epic Research said.

He further said secondly arbitrageurs who creates a multiple positions on various exchanges which has affected them largely. Not just that, traders, speculators, and investors where affected since a lot of orders were punched in from pre-opening sessions to post that when there were a lot of short sell orders as well.

With that it was basically retail clients which were affected and certainly with lack of clarifications it got worse, he feels.

4:00 pm Senior NSE executive Ravi Varanasi told CNBC-TV18 that all issues have been resolved. He also said that trade executed during the first three hours will not be cancelled.

3:30 pm Market Closing: The NSE Nifty closed above 9,700 level for the first time, up 105.25 points or 1.09 percent at 9,771.05 after three hours of normal trading.
