Nasdaq back in business after glitch
August 23 , 2013
Nasdaq has resumed trading after a technical glitch brought it to a halt for over three hours.
The glitch occurred just after noon but the exchange hasn't explained in detail as to what exactly happened. Other exchanges had stopped the trading of Nasdaq stocks. The New York Stock Exchange said "all orders in those securities have been canceled back to customers."
Nasdaq has blamed "quote submissions" in its email to investors.
