  • At issue were trades taking place in the premarket between 9:24 and 9:27 ET, with Nasdaq - after an examination - saying all those executed at a price above $34.01 were busted.
  • The problem appears to be with recent index changes that pulled most REITs out of the financial sector and into their own classification. Guggenheim is giving all RYF owners commensurate shares of the Guggenheim Equal Weight Real Estate ETF (NYSEARCA:EWRE).
  • More than 580K trades look to have been cancelled, some at as high of a price as $43.11.
