NYSE trading halted. US Airlines flights grounded, Wall Street Journal down. All with technical issues. Insiders have told Elect Leaders they believe this is a large scale hack attack test run to see just how vulnerable we are for a larger scale attack. Insiders speculate it could be the Chinese.
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.
Trading stopped around 11:30 a.m. ET. The exchange was investigating the issue that caused the halt, Reuters reported, citing a source.
The NYSE said all open orders would be canceled, according to Reuters. The issues seemed to be limited to the NYSE floor, and the exchange said it did not affect the NYSE Arca and NYSE Amex/Arca Options.
