"Algos-Only" Tomorrow As NYSE Shuts Floor Trading Due To Sandy

Tyler Durden's picture


The NYSE has just released a statement clarifying its hours tomorrow - due to the storm:


So, hold tight as all those low-lying humans will have left the building in the calm thoughtful hands of Johnny-5 and his friends.


Via Bloomberg:

Oct. 28 (Bloomberg) -- The New York Stock Exchange said it will shut its trading floor starting tomorrow and invoke contingency plans to move all trading to NYSE Arca, its electronic exchange, as Hurricane Sandy heads toward the city.


“The re-opening of physical trading floor operations is subject to city and state determinations and local conditions; updates will be forthcoming,” NYSE Euronext said in a statement today.


NYSE Amex Options will open electronically and NYSE MKT, formerly known as NYSE Amex, will be suspended, the exchange operator said.


Full PR:

NYSE to Remain Open for Trading While Physical Trading Floor and New York Building Close in Accordance with Actions Taken By City and State Officials


  • NYSE Euronext invokes contingency plans to trade NYSE-listed securities on NYSE Arca
  • NYSE Arca Options and NYSE Liffe U.S. operational; NYSE Amex Options open electronically
  • Updates on re-opening physical trading operations to come


New York, Oct. 28, 2012  Respecting the actions taken by New York City and State officials to declare a state of emergency, suspend local New York City transportation beginning this evening, and issue evacuations orders in the proximity of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) building , NYSE Euronext (NYX) has decided to suspend physical trading floor operations and invoke its contingency plans to trade all NYSE-listed securities on NYSE Arca, the company's fully electronic exchange, beginning Monday, Oct. 29, 2012. NYSE MKT will be suspended during this period. The re-opening of physical trading floor operations is subject to city and state determinations and local conditions; updates will be forthcoming.

We are open for business and at the same time acting in accordance with actions taken by the city and state of New York, said Duncan L. Niederauer, Chief Executive Officer, NYSE Euronext. We have been in discussions with government officials and regulators, our trading floor community, issuers and other customers.

We will continue to communicate and coordinate activities with regulators and government officials, other market centers, member firms and all of our customers. I would like to acknowledge everyone's outstanding cooperation and singular focus on serving the best interests of people, safety and our capital markets. This is an extremely dangerous and unpredictable weather event, and we support the actions taken by city and state officials. On behalf of everyone at NYSE Euronext, our thoughts and prayers go to everyone impacted by the storm.

This NYSE contingency plan was most recently tested by the industry on March 31, 2012, and allows for uninterrupted trading in NYSE-listed securities in the event the physical trading floor is unavailable. In this scenario, pursuant to NYSE Rule 49 and NYSE Arca Equities Rule 2.100, NYSE-listed trades would be identified on the Consolidated Tape with the NYSE exchange designation N, and quotes would be identified as NYSE quotes on the Consolidated Quote stream. During such a contingency plan, NYSE member organizations will be permitted to enter orders in NYSE-listed securities directly on NYSE Arca, even if not approved as an NYSE Arca ETP Holder. NYSE MKT member organizations that are also Arca ETP Holders may send orders in NYSE MKT-listed securities to NYSE Arca. Quotes and executions in Tape B and Tape C securities on NYSE Arca will continue to be reported as P and there will not be a primary print for NYSE MKT-listed securities. While the NYSE Amex Options trading floor in New York will be closed, electronic trading on NYSE Amex Options will continue normally. NYSE Arca Options will also be operating normally, both electronically and on the physical trading floor in San Francisco, CA.

The NYSE last suspended physical trading floor operations on Friday, Sept. 27, 1985 due to Hurricane Gloria, during which all U.S. markets were closed. For a full list of NYSE market closures, go to:

It's NaNoWriMo (link for those interested) coming up in a couple of days. A friend of mine is writing a novel as always and he suggested that instead of a novel I compose an album on the acoustic guitar in a month. Sounded like a wonderful idea to me.

This story, however, makes me want to reconsider and write "Night of the Evil Algo."

"I pledge allegiance to the algos
Of the HF traders of Wall Street,
And to the corruption for which they stand,
One clusterfuck, centralized, unregulated,
With unlimited debt and tyranny for all."

Gully Foyle's picture Sandy the fireworks are hailin' over Little Eden tonight
Forcin' a light into all those stoned-out faces left
stranded on this forth of July
Down in town the circuit's full with switchblade lovers
so fast so shiny so sharp
As the wizards play down on Pinball Way on the boardwalk way past dark
And the boys from the casino dance with their shirts open
like Latin lovers along the shoreChasin' all them silly girls
Sandy the aurora is risin' beh ind us
The pier lights our carnival life forever
Love me tonight for I may never see you againHey Sandy girl
Now the greasers they tramp the streets or get busted for
trying to sleep on the beach all night
Them boys in their spiked high heels ah Sandy their skins are so white
And me I just got tired of hangin' in them dusty arcades
bangin' them pleasure machines
Chasin' the factory girls underneath the boardwalk where
they promise to unsnap their jeans
And you know that tilt-a-whirl down on the south beach drag
I got on it last night and my shirt got caught
And that Joey kept me spinnin' I didn't think I'd ever get off
Oh Sandy the aurora is risin' behind us
The pier lights our carnival life on the water
Runnin' down the beach at night with my boss's daughter
Well he ain't my boss no more Sandy
Sandy the angels have lost their desire for us
I spoke to 'em just last night and they said they won't
set themselves on fire for us anymore
Every summer when the weather gets hot they ride that road
down from heaven on their Harleys they come and they go
And you can see 'em dressed like stars in all the cheap
little seashore bars parked making love with their
babies out on the Kokomo
Well the cops finally busted Madame Marie for tellin'
fortunes better than they doThis boardwalk life for me is through
You kmow you ought to quit this scene tooSandy the aurora's rising behind us
The pier lights out carnival life forever
Oh love me tonight and I promise I'll love you forever

I propose we measure the sterngth of natural disasters in QE's based on projected damage. Since QE's are growing exponentially (like the Richted magnitude scale), they'd work perfectly.

considering the normal volatility now in the nat gas and oil trade, since the algos took over, it will be interesting to watch without humans keeping a lid on the price increases.

We may see a 15% rise and fall in milliseconds over and over again.

The big question is where the goals will be set for the algos, and who will be setting them.

After the Amazon and Apple bullshit last week, we surely have no clue where the market is going tomorrow.

I am just not getting this "Sandy" deal. They are making this sound like it is Armageddon and the meteor is going to wipe out Wall Street. Hmmmm, hold that thought. I know it is going to rain and there will be wind but are millions going to be out of work or have their homes destroyed and is NY going to wash out to the sea.

Me thinks outside of the idiotic campaign of the two clueless candidates it is a slow week for news. Can't have the truth a week before the election. Anyway, it all seems a bit overhyped to me. Am so glad I turned the TV off 2 years ago for the most part. Do not miss all the crap one bit.

I don't get it ... why does NYSE still have on-floor trading desks? What do those people do anyway other than posing for camera when market goes up/down?

So............if we don't notice any changes or difference from normal trading this will meanthat the human component hasn't meant anything and the machine have been in control for years?


If the market tanks then we can feel better?

This should be interesting.

When the market does a digital dump they can blame it on Sandy.

I'm short the SnP and can't wait.

Go long plywood and generators?

It will be interesting to see, since the melt-up last Friday was 100% HFTs (not some lone hapless a-hole at the NY Fed).

Now with no humans on the floor at all.  All eyes DXY bids.

C'mon machines get funky

Will they raze the buildings whilst witnesses are absent to enable subsequent gentrification?

I think 'humans trading" on a physical floor must be like blacksmith demonstrations at the local autumn festivals, bygones of a far different era.

Have you guys seen the projected trajectory by the fear-mongering MSM?  It's following the coast smooth and easy, then suddenly makes a hard left so it can pass over New York.


I predict it fades to nothing, and Obama takes credit for inflating your tires.

it might even boost GDP a bit, as Obama stimulates spending on storm-proof construction materials and housing reinforcement, increasing real-estate value and personal wealth (eh, just ignore the damage)

US is saved by nature... blaming nature and climate is good for seasonal adjustment fudging as well...

the effect of NYSE being closed will be limited - they do have robots doing the majority of trading in Europe too
