With NASDAQ Out, CNBC Opens The ‘Decabox’

The NASDAQ was out of commission for a few hours today, the result of a computer malfunction. Suffice it to say, this was a big deal in the world of financial news. It was so big, in fact, that CNBC had no choice but to bring in 10 analysts at once to talk about it.
