One temporary halt and three delay attempts later, and we get.... this.

Yes, this is the Russian stock market.

What does this mean?  Is this the result of a hack, technical issue or is their market really just having a bad day enough for them to close trading to prevent a collapse?  Nothing in the MSM about any of this yet.

This isn't a hack job, and for the MSM (CNBC didn't make any comment about it) not to say anything about it tells me bundles.  It says that things are starting to fall apart and it's not happening in a controlled fashion anymore.

We can't speak badly of our Russian friends ... they are just having some "teething problems". It's only been 23 years since the [mock] fall of the Soviet Socialist Central Planning Union and a few "misfits" haven't got with the program yet. Putin will sort them out....
