At about the noon hour today stocks on the NASDAQ stock exchange were halted without much news besides a “technical issue.” According to CNBC, the markets should reopen at 3:30 although a few stocks will be reopened as a test around 3PM. (Quotes “only” for other Nasdaq listed stocks begins at 3:10PM)
I’ve been eyeballing my ticker screen for a few hours now and find it hard to believe that a glitch like this has not been built into their plans. IMHO, heads should roll.
