Cloudflare 'widespread' outage causes downtime in stock trading apps

Retail investors bruised as stock trading apps face 'connectivity issues'


The company, which faced a similar outage in some parts of the world last week, didn’t disclose what caused the issue.

Cloudflare, Inc. said on Tuesday it resolved a “widespread” outage earlier in the day that affected a large number of services, including FTX, Discord, Omegle, DoorDash, Crunchyroll, NordVPN, and Feedly.

The internet infrastructure firm resolved the issue roughly an hour after users began facing issues accessing some popular sites, including Zerodha,, news outlet Register, Groww, Buffer, iSpirt, Upstox, and Social Blade.

As domestic equity market indices were inching higher on Tuesday, retail investors had a particularly tough time placing buy-and-sell orders on discount broking platforms due to an hour-long technical outage at internet infrastructure provider Cloudflare’s end.
