BREAKING NEWS: New York Stock Exchange halts trading

by:

General

The New York Stock Exchange is currently halting all trading, for reasons not yet announced.
The halt started at 11:32am and was triggered by ‘technical issues,’ the NYSE said in a statement 
‘We’re
currently experiencing a technical issue we’re working to resolve as
quickly as possible,’ the statement reads, adding that ‘additional
information will follow as soon as possible.’
The
Department of Homeland Security has also issued a statement about the
shutdown, saying there is currently ‘no sign of malicious activity’.

With
nothing to buy or sell, traders on the usually frantic stock floor were
seen sitting and standing around staring at the blank trading terminals
where they usually do business. 
The
halt comes on the same day that United Airlines flights around the
country were grounded due to a nationwide technical issue on their own
network.
The Wall Street Journal newspaper’s website homepage has also broken down, and only displays an error message. 
Traders
on the floor say they were handed out a piece of paper this morning
before trading, with a list of ‘possibly problematic’ stocks, according
to CNN. Some of those stocks include Korea Electric Power and American
companies like Kate Spade and Nordstrom.
However, it’s unclear if that list has anything to do with the ongoing trading shutdown.
