The Nasdaq Stock Market is down more than 40% since the beginning of January, and investors are increasingly turning to online trading platforms to try to beat it.
But the latest news out of Wall Street isn’t exactly encouraging.
The Nasdxt trading halter has suspended trading on the platform after trading for nearly three weeks, and the site has reported a decline of $1.2 billion in its most recent quarter.
That would leave the platform with less than $400 million in its account.
The Nasdaq’s stock market halter was created in 2010 to prevent a stock market meltdown if a major stock exchange failed.
The system allows investors to trade shares on the Nasdaq exchange, and then sell them on an exchange like the Nasdx platform.
It has also allowed investors to use their own personal accounts on Nasdaq to buy and sell stocks on the exchange.
“The Nasdex system is designed to make trading with the NasDAQ exchange a hassle-free experience,” Nasdaq said in a statement.
“It’s the only stock market trading platform that lets you trade stocks on your own and buy and hold them on your personal trading account.
The trading halters have been temporarily suspended, but Nasdaq expects to resume trading on January 31, 2018.”
There’s no clear reason for the stock exchange’s decision to halt trading on Nasdxd.
It is not clear whether the trading halting was prompted by the recent stock market losses, or whether the stock markets were still experiencing issues after Nasdaq announced it was shutting down trading on Jan. 31.
It is not yet clear if the trading Halter has affected any of the more than 10 million Nasdaq shares that have been traded on the site since the start of January.
In a statement to CNBC, Nasdaq spokesman Brian Brown said the trading system has been in place for three weeks and is not impacted by the market events.
“We expect to resume normal trading in the coming days,” he said.
Investors should also not be concerned by the Nasx platform’s lack of trading, which makes trading on any exchange the best way to trade a stock.
The trading haltered Nasdaq and its trading platform has been a top performer on Nasx since the launch of the system in 2010.
Nasdxfusion, an alternative trading platform, has been trading at a premium on Nasxdx for several months.
But a stock that was up by nearly 80% in one day and then went down by nearly 20% in another day is hardly a stellar indicator of whether the market is performing as expected.
If you want to see how to beat Nasdaq trading, here’s how to do it.
Investing with your own personal account on NasDx is the best option for investors that want to buy or sell stocks without a stock exchange.
