Trading Suspensions

The SEC may impose trading suspensions in non-exempt securities or on an exchange or NASDAQ if certain emergency conditions exist. If there is significant and excessive price fluctuations, or the prospect of significant and excessive price fluctuations that would disrupt the orderly operation of the security or market, the SEC may suspend trading in the security or in the market as a whole. The SEC may suspend the trading in a security for up to 10 business days, including any extension of the order. The SEC may suspend the trading on an exchange or in a market as a whole for up to 90 days. In the case of a market wide suspension, the SEC must notify The President of The United States and he must not disapprove the suspension.
