Amid the market turmoil on August 24th, trading was disrupted by delayed openings, more than 1,000 halts, and wild price swings. In fact, by 9:40am that day over a hundred S&P 500 stocks were still not open for trading. BlackRock has put out a paper this week with what it believes could be the solution to prevent a repeat incident. In order to curb volatility, the asset manager is championing uniform circuit breaker thresholds throughout the trading day, fully electronic market opens, and limiting stop-loss orders which execute at any market price once triggered.
