Trading Halt

A brief pause of trading for a specific security or securities on one or more exchanges. Trading can be suspended in preparation of a news announcement, to rectify an order imbalance, owing to a technical problem, due to regulatory concerns, or because the price of the securities or index has moved quickly enough to warrant a halt based on exchange rules. Open orders may be cancelled and options may still be exercised when a trading halt is in place.
