First the Stock Market, then the Airlines, see breaking report on the airlines below!
Without announcement, all trading ceased on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange as of 11:32am on Wednesday.
While off-floor trading is still occurring, every listing on the NYSE board is currently showing “HALT” and/or “No Quotation.”
The NYSE has released a statement stating that trading has halted due to a technology issue and that they are working to restore trading as quickly as possible.
With no known relationship, the Wall Street Journal’s online site has also become unavailable during the same period displaying an odd 504 error instead of the usual 404 – not found.
According to the Washington Times, they are working hurriedly to resolve the issue! The NYSE issued a new statement saying the shutdown was attributable to an “internal” computer malfunction and was not the result of an outside cyberattack. But are they telling us the truth? Will this have any impact on the economy and the coming collapse? I do not know. But this is worth watching! Let’s hope it is resolved soon.
