Frequently Asked Questions
  What is a trading halt, and how long does it last?
Identification Number 499
A temporary trading halt benefits existing and potential shareholders by ensuring that material news is distributed equally among the investing public and the marketplace and that trading is based on publicly held facts. MarketWatch takes into account the timing of the disclosure by the company, the relative importance of the material news and any other factors that might necessitate a temporary trading halt in its evaluation of the material disclosure. Nasdaq usually reaches out to the company before making a halt determination. MarketWatch generally implements trading halts from 7:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. ET. Between 4:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. ET, MarketWatch may implement temporary trading halts at the request of a Nasdaq company when related to material news or in conjunction with a regulatory trading halt imposed by a foreign listing market. Trading is normally resumed in a stock about thirty minutes following dissemination of the material disclosure through a Regulation FD compliant method, although Nasdaq may vary the length of the trading halt in consultation with the company or when Nasdaq is scheduling trading resumptions around the open or close of regular market hours.
