TOKYO -- The Tokyo Stock Exchange will reopen Friday morning, after technical malfunction on Thursday caused Japan's main stock market to halt activity for an entire day for the first time.

"After discussing with market participants, if trading resumed today, there was a request that it would be difficult to deal with customers and smooth trading," Koichiro Miyahara, president and CEO of TSE, said in a press conference. "So we decided to suspend trading for the entire day."
