New Delhi: Trading of five companies including online retailer Amazon and both Alphabet share classes on New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) was suspended on Wednesday due to a technical glitch.
The other companies are Booking Holdings, Zion Oil and Gas Equity Warrants.
The exchange, which is owned by Intercontinental Exchange Inc (ICE.N), said the suspension was due to a “price scale code” issue and any open orders in those securities would be canceled, as per a Reuters report.
The securities can still be traded on other exchanges, including those run by Nasdaq Inc, Cboe Global Markets and IEX Group.
There are 13 US stock exchanges, around 40 private trading venues known as dark pools and dozens of single-dealer platforms.
