NYSE Trading Halted Last Week

Several news sources reported that trading in 242 stocks was suspended because of computer server problem on the New York Stock Exchange last Friday. The  outage, which lasted from about 11:30 a.m. to 12:10 p.m. affected stocks such as ExxonMobil, General Electric, American Express Co and Merck & Co.

The exact problem with the server has not been announced, and as of yet there is nothing on the NYSE web site discussing the outage.

The NYSE has had computer problems in the past, I have wrote about last year.
