The Tokyo Stock Exchange said Monday it has raised its trading capacity to 14 million transactions per day, up from 12 million, as part of a revamp announced earlier this year.

The TSE has boosted trading system capacity in stages after a glitch paralyzed the world’s second-largest bourse for half a day last November, forcing it to suspend all stock trading.

In January, the market was forced to shorten trading hours for shares in Livedoor Co. as a rush of sell orders flooded the system after the firm was raided over alleged securities law violations.
