You know why aren't they opened today that's going to be an issue and -- question that the market is gonna ask and should ask all the exchange officials.
Listen here's the bottom line.
Capitals and still goes on who's a big storm take it from me I was on the -- as many ground -- of the storm I lived on -- and one of them live on the east far east side.

I -- the first avenue kinda creepy postal apocalyptic feel to it.
You hit 42 street you see signs of life it's the other cities coming back this city survived 9/11.
It's gonna -- this it's it's and I understand that but here's the thing about the markets markets -- global.

New York Stock Exchange is.
Is located in Chicago.
So it was archipelago it's in Chicago the NASDAQ I believe is look at isn't it it's more -- that.
These things could run down the question is why didn't.

The right -- activity the right sort of systems in place to work on a fully -- platform let me -- some -- some -- -- just let me just -- -- -- -- just firms will tell you something else -- -- tell you.
Their systems have not been tested fully to deal with this that they -- -- estimate maybe after that and we we've lacked confidence that system.
The bottom line is this will what -- who's ever -- that is it's gotta get fixed you cannot have the markets down today's because of the storm.
-- as it is you don't need human beings they didn't.

If that's needed for tomorrow the electronic platform that -- referenced and they're gonna communicate early today about the exact plans for tomorrow whether it's electronic arts physical for trading because I always say it.
We should point out its electronic and fiscal the new York stock price changes platform lets give the viewers some sort of overview why we're talking about this.
Need we -- if if a stock is traded matched buy and sell it through the New York Stock Exchange it's either matched.
Through the computer known as -- archipelago which is look -- in Chicago.
-- matched on the floor mart okay it's a known as a hybrid system.
The notion that he could just have a a computer is something that the New York Stock Exchange is set for most of stocks trade on the computer we got a hard break right.
