FLASH: (4th Update 1:01 p.m. EDT U.S.A.) The New York Stock Exchange floor has halted trading, according to an 11:51 a.m. (EDT) message on its status page.

“NYSE/NYSE MKT has temporarily suspended trading in all symbols,” the message reads in part. “All open orders will be cancelled. Additional information will follow as soon as possible.”

NYSE Tweets say the halt is attributable to “a technical issue.” A cyber breach is not responsible, the exchange said.

From CNBC: “It’s been a little bit of a bumpy day. We had some technical problems even before the opening,” said Art Cashin, director of floor operations at the NYSE, in a CNBC interview.”

In a 12:01 p.m. message, the NYSE said, “NYSE Arca and NYSE Amex/Arca Options are unaffected by this issue and continue normal operations at this time.”

The Dow Jones Industrial Average was down more than 213 points at 12:13 p.m.

Just prior to 1 p.m., the SEC Tweeted this:

    It does seem they tried that, Tony.

    What’s whigging out some folks was that the NYSE situation followed on the heels of some sort of technical glitch that halted United Airlines flights earlier today, an outage today at The Wall Street Journal, some past Wall Street oddities, etc.
