Reports are coming from Twitter that trading has been unexpectedly halted on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.
In an immediate and brief statement, NYSE confirmed, “NYSE/NYSE MKT has temporarily suspended trading in all symbols. Additional information will follow as soon as possible.”
Early indications are that a computer problem or glitch is the cause. Coincidentally, United Airlines had to ground all flights for an hour this morning due to computer issues as well.
This is a developing story. Please check back for further updates.
