NEW YORK (AP) — Trading was halted on the New York Stock Exchange in the late morning because of a technical issue.

The halt occurred at about 11:30 a.m. Eastern time Wednesday. The exchange calls it an internal issue, not the result of a security breach, and says it's working to resolve it as quickly as possible.

NYSE-listed stocks are still trading on other exchanges. The Nasdaq and other exchanges are unaffected by the outage.
