New York Stock Exchange Suspends Physical Floor Trading Due To Hurricane Sandy [View all]

Source: News1130

TORONTO - Hurricane Sandy is set to overshadow the start of the trading week after the operator of the New York Stock Exchange said that it is suspending physical floor trading operations.

NYSE Euronext said late Sunday afternoon that while the exchange will remain open for trading Monday, it will invoke its contingency plan which involves trading all NYSE-listed securities on its Arca system, its fully electronic exchange.

The move by the NYSE came after it was announced that New York’s public transit system would shut at 7 p.m. EDT Sunday while 375,000 residents would be evacuated from low-lying areas of the city. Many major businesses in lower Manhattan are suspending or curtailing operations.

It’s not known when the NYSE trading floor will re-open.
