Computer glitch halts trading on New York Stock Exchange

Posted:

NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Stock Exchange stopped trading in the late morning Wednesday because of a technical issue, though shares continued to trade on other exchanges.
  

The exchange says in a statement that it is experiencing a "technical issue" that it is working to resolve as quickly as possible. It did not specify the exact nature of the technical issue.
   

Trading continued on Nasdaq and other exchanges.


The New York Stock Exchange says the problem "an internal technical issue" and not the result of a security breach.
   

The exchange made the statement in a tweet on its official Twitter account. The trading halt is ongoing and has so far lasted about an hour Wednesday.
