    Trading halted on NYSE floor

    Trading halted on NYSE floor

    Stock Markets, Business News, Financials, Earnings - CNBC

    Computer problems shut down NYSE.

    Also:

    All Continental Airlines Flights Grounded due to computer problem.

    Plus:

    Wall Street Journal hit by computer problems according to CNN - link to come.

    DHS says they are not connected and that there is no evidence of terrorism... REALLY???

    We may be under a cyber attack, so stay aware. Hope not.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    This feels like a cyber attack. Too coincidental. God forbid if they got a hold of our banking system.

    I think they're worried about China.

    I'm no I.T. guy, but I have worked in telecom - in systems like those supporting the NYSE, I'd expect a ton of robust redundancy.

    So yes, this does smell like an attack.
