Word around the office is that its a "Gateway connectivity issue"

EDIT: The more I look at this and hear it, the more likely this is the root problem. They had gateway issues earlier today and even left 1 of 3 routers out of service.

    The following BCCG gateway will remain offline for the remainder of the day and be returned to normal service for the next trading session.
            159.125.65.142

So, they could have had routing issues, or load issues and stopped everything so they ensure they don't loose any trades.

EDIT 2:

trading is back

MARKET RE-OPEN TIMES

    We will begin accepting orders and resume trading according to the following schedule:

        3:05pm  NYSE MKT - Primaries only
        3:10pm  NYSE

    Closing auctions will continue as normal.

I see similiar things, NYSE usually doesn't usually go down, but everyone has technical difficulties. Most trading is done away from the floor now, so the Tech is super important to people. We usually put in specific connections back to the NYSE or Bloomberg to Client trading floors. I've seen that side of things break plenty.

More likely a hardware failure, and logical routing issues. I have no idea though.

Trading of all securities was still available through other exchanges, so the effects should be limited and minimized. it will have definitely have caused some people headaches and lost money, but I wouldn't think it would even be close to the end of the world.

EDIT: also I focus on IT, not financial services so its an amateur opinion.
