Nasdaq OMX Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:NDAQ) is working through another technical glitch, as trading has frozen on the Nasdaq Composite, the Nasdaq-100 Index, and several other Nasdaq indexes.
Stocks listed on the Nasdaq are continuing to trade normally. Some options contracts have been halted due to the issue with index data.
The Nasdaq OMX Group issued a statement at 12:15 p.m. ET, attributing the glitch to its Global Index Data Service data platform, which has been in use for roughly 18 months. This is a different system than what triggered the outage at the exchange in late August.
At the time it was halted, the Nasdaq Composite (COMP - 3,940.02) was little changed, down 0.1 point. The Nasdaq-100 Index (NDX - 3,383.19) was up 0.5 point, or 0.02%.
Please check back for additional information as it breaks.
Update, 12:56 p.m. ET:
Indexes have resumed normal trading. Both the COMP and the NDX are showing modest gains.
