Nasdaq halts trading due to a technical issue
Trading has been halted in Nasdaq-listed securities because of a technical problem.
The exchange sent out an alert to traders at 12:20 p.m. EDT saying that trading was being halted until further notice because of problems with a quote dissemination system.
Nasdaq said it wouldn't be canceling any open orders.
