FINRA Investor Alert on “When Trading Stops”

Samuels Yoelin Kantor LLP

(September 27) FINRA has released one of its periodic Investor Alerts, this one called “When Trading Stops: What You Need to Know About Halts, Suspensions and Other Interruptions.” It explains why, when and how regulatory interruptions in securities trading happen. The document addresses both the broad-market “circuit breaker” halts triggered by a percentage drop in the Dow, and the exchanges’ suspending trading for individual stocks. Interruptions may protect investors from volatility, from bad or incomplete information on a stock, or from market manipulation. New SEC volatility rules go into effect in February 2013.

Client Reviews

Thank you for your most kind and efficient treatment during my dilemma.


Darlene was so helpful in this matter, I had been trying for months to get help and she came through for me . . . I would recommend her in a heartbeat.


From the first time I spoke with her about my lawsuit, to the successful conclusion, Darlene was always the support I needed.


You folks put on an excellent case and we were, to say the least, extremely nervous about the outcome.
