New York Stock Exchange closes due to Hurricane Sandy

While Los Angeles is enjoying some warm weather due to the Santa Ana winds, our friends in New York City are shutting down due to hurricane Sandy.

For the first time in years the NYSE closed before it even opened due to the severe weather conditions of hurricane Sandy.

Sand Bags lined the street this morning in front of the NYSE in lower Manhattan today, while everyone prepares for one of the worst storms to hit NYC in years.

“A shut down of trading for a couple of days to save one human life is the right thing to do”.  Dick Grasso former NYSE Chairman and CEO.

Mortgage rates are slightly lower than Friday, however not much is expected today due to the shut down.
