Trading in all symbols was halted on the New York Stock Exchange floor Wednesday due to an apparent technical issue. “NYSE/NYSE MKT has temporarily suspended trading in all symbols. Additional information will follow as soon as possible,” the NYSE said in a statement on its status page. The exchange was investigating the issue that caused the halt, Reuters reported, citing a source.
Trading stopped around 11:30 a.m. ET. The NYSE said all open orders would be canceled, according to Reuters. The issues seemed to be limited to the NYSE floor. The Nasdaq reported no technical issues and said it continues to trade NYSE-listed stocks. “It’s been a little bit of a bumpy day. We had some technical problems even before the opening,” said Art Cashin, director of floor operations at the NYSE, in a CNBC interview. FULL REPORT
