Details on market closings: All U.S. equity markets will close - including NYSE and Nasdaq/BATS, and Nasdaq derivatives exchanges as well as Nasdaq/Finra TRF - and won't trade, electronically or otherwise, on Monday, the SEC confirms. It's a step beyond closing just floor trading, as previously reported. A decision about whether stock markets will open Tuesday will likely come tomorrow. (Updated: Nasdaq details; CBOE; CME confirms opening)

    As of now, CME is reporting that GLOBEX stock-index futures will be open on Monday, so the report that derivative exchanges will stop trading electronically seems to be wrong. In fact, GLOBEX stock-index futures are trading right this minute.

    Added word to clarify: Nasdaq derivatives exchanges. Details are still trickling out from various markets.

    The financial "masters of the Universe" cower before the real Master.

     

    A great manifestation of nature is also a great antidote to the hubris of humanity.

    This is ridiculous. Most traders are outside the northeast and most computers doing trading are well away from any danger.

    Apparently you arent aware that things on the internet actually do need a real physical presence somewhere in the form of servers or operators etc..... And if that somewhere has a hurricane then it affects things.

    With cloud technology those servers do not need to be in the path of the storm. And the NYSE put even its backups in the path of the storm. It's a scandal, and I suspect it will lead to profound change. http://bit.ly/QQow1w

    looking at radar, the storm appears to be almost over - I must be missing something!

    Luckycharlie,
    You don't get away that easy!
    CNN and FOX need you to watch constantly for another 24 hours of emergency commentary with generous numbers of commercial breaks!

    According to Keynesian this hurricane is great. It will create jobs from all the spending needed to repair things. I mean their logic is sound,, just look at Haiti. Its been a paradise ever since the earthquake.

    Sunny and a beautiful fall 60deg+ day here, but I understand the magnitude of the looming storm east, and wish the best for any in its path. Having lived through several major wildfires this season, these events can be testing.
