NEW YORK (September 4, 2013)--The Nasdaq Stock Market says one of its trading systems experienced a brief outage Wednesday, but says the problem was resolved and trading was not affected.
Nasdaq OMX, the parent company of the Nasdaq Stock Market, says the outage lasted for six minutes, from 10:35 a.m. CDT to 10:41 a.m.
The outage occurred in one of Nasdaq's quote dissemination channels, which are used to provide real-time price quotes on stocks.
The companies affected by the outage have stock tickers PC through SPZ.
The outage is the latest technical difficulty to hit the exchange, which endured a three-hour trading outage on August 22.
That outage was also blamed on the exchange's price quote disseminating system.
