    Is there a problem with the QM trading today? QM trading shuts down between 9:30 AM until 10 AM EST every day. Today, it never came back up at 10 AM. Anyone notice this and/or hear of a reason for it?

    according to CNBC:
    oil halted until 11 am to observe 911.

    I can't find anything on the NYMEX website either, but TradeStation sent the following out to their clients:

    "Please be aware all trading in NYMEX and GLOBEX Energy contracts is halted until 11:00 pm ET due to the 9/11 observance."

    Nice of them to let us know at the last minute.
