Fraudulent coronavirus drugs draw FDA, FTC warnings for Bakker, others


The New York Stock Exchange said Wednesday it will temporarily close its trading floor and move fully to electronic trading as the coronavirus pandemic takes hold.

All electronic trading will begin on Monday, March 23, the exchange said. 

“While we are taking the precautionary step of closing the trading floors, we continue to firmly believe the markets should remain open and accessible to investors,” Stacey Cunningham, president of the New York Stock Exchange, said in a statement.

All NYSE markets will continue to operate under normal trading hours despite the closure of the trading floors, she added.

The facilities to be closed include the NYSE equities trading floor in New York, NYSE American Options trading floor in New York and NYSE Arca Options trading floor in San Francisco.
