  • Equities trading is halted for 15 minutes after the S&P 500  plunges 7% at the open.
  • The Dow sinks 7.3% and the Nasdaq falls 6.9%.
  • Trading is set to resume at 9:49 AM ET.
  • Update at 9:47 AM: About a third of the S&P 500 didn't trade before the NYSE halted trading, according to Bloomberg. That implies more pain when trading resumes in a minute.
