Nasdaq has halted the trade of all Nasdaq-listed securities over a technical issue, it was reported.

U.S. stock exchanges were later halted.

The company halted trading on Thursday at around noon, reported the Wall Street Journal on its Twitter feed.

It is unclear what caused the technical issue or how long the company will halt trading.

“Due to issues with quote dissemination to the UTP SIP, NASDAQ BX and PSX are halting trading in Tape C securities until further notice,” reads an alert published at around 12:30 p.m., according to the Journal.
