Trading on the New York Stock Exchange floor was halted shortly after 11:30 am local time Wednesday, with all screens displaying a “No quotation” message, according to eyewitnesses.

“We’re currently experiencing a technical issue that we’re working to resolve as quickly as possible. We will be providing further updates as soon as we can, and are doing our utmost to produce a swift resolution, communicate thoroughly and transparently, and ensure a timely and orderly market re-open,” the NYSE said in an official statement.

Trading in all symbols was halted on the New York Stock Exchange floor Wednesday due to an apparent technical issue. The NYSE tweeted that there was no sign of a cyberattack.

“NYSE/NYSE MKT has temporarily suspended trading in all symbols. Additional information will follow as soon as possible,” the NYSE said in a statement on its status page.

Trading stopped around 11:30 a.m. ET. The NYSE said an “internal technical issue” caused the halt rather than a cyberattack.

The NYSE said all open orders would be canceled, according to Reuters. The issues seemed to be limited to the NYSE floor, and the exchange said it did not affect the NYSE Arca and NYSE Amex/Arca Options.
