Glitch Occupies Wall Street: Bug Releases United Airlines, Moves to NYSE

@NYSE Tweet Acknowledging Glitch
Occupy Wall Street may have a new meaning. On the same day that United Airlines was forced by a system glitch to ground its fleet for more than an hour, CNBC and other outlets are reporting that the New York Stock Exchange has halted trading because of what its Twitter message called "an internal technical issue."

As CNET notes, glitches on the trading platforms are relatively rare, but the NASDAQ was last affected by a glitch in 2013.
