(CNN) – The New York Stock Exchange resumed its operation from 3:10 p.m. local time, after being closed for more than three hours due to a technical problem, as reported on its website.
In the morning a spokesman for the Exchange said that work was being done to resolve the problem as soon as possible.
“We will provide more information as soon as we can. We are trying our best to have a quick resolution (of the problem). Everything will be communicated transparently and we will ensure that the market is reopened in a timely and orderly manner, ”said the source consulted by CNN.
The Stock Exchange stopped its operations from 11:32 a.m. local time. The institution ruled out that it was a "cyber violation."
The FBI offered assistance to monitor the problem, however, said "no further public order action is needed at this time" and added that it will continue pending this issue.
Meanwhile, the White House reported that President Barack Obama was informed of this closure and together with the Treasury Department they are "mounting the situation."
A spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security consulted by CNN said "there are no signs of malicious activity at this time," when asked about technical problems at the New York Stock Exchange.
A United Airlines source with knowledge of the airline's computer problem on Wednesday morning told CNN that there is no evidence that both situations were linked.
"Our teams have investigated the computer problem and have determined that it is not a" hacker "job at all. There is no piracy at all and there is no evidence of any connection to what is happening on the New York Stock Exchange, ”said the source.
