WASHINGTON, July 8, 2014 – Trading was halted on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) on “all symbols” at approximately 11:45 a.m. EDT Wednesday, apparently due to some kind of technical glitch. There is no word yet from the exchange as to when trading might resume.
The exchange noted that all open orders at the time of the suspension in trading would be canceled. Individual traders should be sure to check their online broker’s trading platform to track any open orders at this time, as they may have to be re-entered at some point.
We have verified reports that the Wall Street Journal’s website, wsj.com, is down as well. The site is currently posting headlines but is not yet offering a time when the full site will again become available.
We’ll provide a quick update to this report if and when the NYSE status changes.
UPDATING: NYSE says trading on the exchange will re-open at 3:10 p.m. EDT.Click here for reuse options!
