NEW YORK (October 30, 2012)--The New York Stock Exchange will reopen for regular trading Wednesday after it shut down for two days because of Hurricane Sandy.
The exchange said in a statement Tuesday that its building and trading floor are fully operational.
Tuesday marked the first time since 1888 that the NYSE remained closed for two consecutive days because of weather.
The last time that happened was because of a massive snowstorm.
Sections of Manhattan were inundated with water and power was shut off to thousands of people and businesses.
Global markets rebounded Tuesday, though trading was subdued in the wake of the storm.
