The NYSE opens at 9:30 am EST and closes at 4:00 pm
The most reported and most followed is the DOW Ind. Average.
The DOW closed at 25,766.64 Yesterday
If the markets plunge to certain levels, trading will be
halted for a time.
This is commonly known as “circuit breakers”.
The circuit breakers are triggered by a decline in the S&P 500,
not the DOW, although both indexes usually rise and fall in
very similar percentages.
…”If the index falls by 7% below its previous close, this is
known as a Level 1 decline. A Level 2 decline refers to a
drop of 13%, whereas a Level 3 decline refers to a drop of 20%.
Level 1 or 2 circuit breakers halt trading on all exchanges
for 15 minutes, unless they are triggered at or after 3:25 PM,
in which case trading is allowed to continue. Level 3 circuit
breakers halt trading for the remainder of the trading day
(9:30 AM to 4:00 PM).”…
