SEC Chairman Harvey L. Pitt issued the following statement following today's terrorist attack in New York: “The Commission has been, and is, in constant communication with each of our organized securities markets and exchanges. As a safety precaution while the tragic events of today are sorted out, the securities markets have decided not to open for trading today. We strongly support that decision; it is a responsible course of action in light of the current situation.

We will keep the public advised.” Editor's note: For any comments regarding this article, or to suggest a story idea for RR Online or Registered Representative magazine, contact Editor in Chief Dan Jamieson at [email protected], Online Editor Rick Weinberg at [email protected], Online Managing Editor Cheryl Cooper at [email protected] or Senior Editor Michael Hayes at [email protected]
