Mayor Bloomberg Opens NYSE in First Post-Sandy Trading Day

The New York Stock Exchange opened at 9:30am, after being closed for two days due to Hurricane Sandy. With power out to most of downtown Manhattan — including mediabistro HQ, we’re all working from home, or other’s homes — some of the data is not displaying as normal. CNBC’s Melissa Lee assuring viewers, “There’s nothing wrong with the trading on the Dow. It’s just the data feed coming into this one screen on the exchange. Most of the others ones are black because we’re running on generator power.” FBN aired an opening bell special report with Neil Cavuto, Liz Claman and Charlie Gasparino.

The last time the NYSE closed for two days due to weather was in 1888.
