THE NEW YORK STOCK Exchange has suspended all trading in all stocks, and is investigating an apparent technical glitch.

Trading halted at 4.32pm (Irish Time) and the Stock Exchange said in a notice on its website that “additional information will follow as soon as possible”.

An NYSE statement cited “technical issues”.

“It’s under control,” Mark Otto of market maker J. Streicher & Co in New York said on the NYSE floor, according to Reuters.

“We’re just waiting for word. There’s no sign of panic at all”.
