New York Stock Exchange halts trading in Berkshire Hathaway and other stocks after apparent plunge

Source: Financial Times [UK]

“The New York Stock Exchange said it was investigating a technical glitch that led to dozens of trading halts for US-listed companies, in the second issue to hit the world’s biggest exchange in less than a week. … A spokesperson for the exchange told the Financial Times the glitch did not appear to be the result of a cyber attack. Caught up in the volatility were Berkshire Hathaway’s class A shares, which appeared to plunge 99 per cent before a LULD trading pause — which prohibits trading activity in exchange-listed securities at prices outside specified price bands — was initiated.” (06/03/24)
