The Nasdaq OMX exchange halted trading across all securities in the early afternoon Thursday due to a technical issue "until further notice." The Nasdaq is home to thousands of stocks, particularly technology giants, like Apple (AAPL, Fortune 500), Google (GOOG, Fortune 500) and Microsoft (MSFT, Fortune 500). Trading in Nasdaq-listed options were also halted. SEC spokesman John Nester said the agency is "monitoring the situation" and that it is "in close contact with the exchanges." The Nasdaq said it intends to reopen trading but had not yet determined the start time. Nasdaq said it would not be canceling open orders, but said customers who wish to cancel their orders can do so, and customers who wish to not participate in the re-opening of trading should cancel their orders before trading resumes. Trading was halted due to issues with "quote dissemination," the exchange said in alerts sent out to traders. The New York Stock Exchange said it halted all Nasdaq securities at the request of the Nasdaq.

I did a little Google search on this.
I would have expected to see a lot more news about this. Most of the hits were on financial blogs, but not the big name ones.
I think that's weird.
