Trading in all symbols was temporarily halted on the New York Stock Exchange floor Wednesday due to an apparent technical issue.
"NYSE/NYSE MKT has temporarily suspended trading in all symbols. Additional information will follow as soon as possible," the NYSE said in a status statement on its status page Wednesday.
A technical issue caused the trading halt, Reuters reported, citing a source.
This story is developing. Please check back for further updates.
As NYSE trading remains halted, Art Cashin, director of floor operations at NYSE, has some advice for retail investors.
"This will not cause a move in any particular direction, so I would kind of wait it out and see what happens. If the market were in freefall when something happened, then you might be concerned that your opportunity to do something would be denied you. But we're already down," he told CNBC.

It is hard to believe that 3 major computer glitches all hit within hours of each other had no hacking involved.
They are saying that a router is the problem with United Air, but I wonder if it was not sabotaged, along with the wall street journal, and the NYSE.
Either that or they all use the same routers and it was just bad luck, but I dunno, smells like a cyber attack of some kind to me.
