    I don't see any trading at all in the premarket. I know it's only just after 6am, but usually at this time of day SPY and maybe some big cap stocks like BAC would be trading.

    What's going on? Is there some kind of bank holiday / trading halt relating to Europe?

    That scares me quite a bit too. I'm concerned that the govt has ordered some kind of media blackout on this, just so people won't be scared and start withdrawing all their cash from banks today.
  4. It shows an INCREDIBLE control over the media. Even the foreign press are silent on the subject...

    ... but I (like you) know that where there's smoke, there's fire ...

    And just how, precisely, could people withdraw cash from banks on Thanksgiving holiday?
  6. I think Tsing Tao is on to something... good point!
  7. My quotes are stuck.
  8. Mine too. Saw somewhere the US open was delayed...24 hours.

    This is becoming an ET holiday tradition - Happy TG everyone!

    Good to hear it's not just me. My ES quotes are working fine, but I can't get any US stock quotes now :(
