COMPQ Nasdaq Composite Index Loses Data Feed Update
At 11:53 AM, the Nasdaq Composite loses the data feed update. The price is displayed in a frozen state on business cable television outlets and web sites. About 45 minutes later, around 12:40 PM, the Nasdaq begins updating again. The computer glitch is blamed on human error and a data service feed problem involving the Global Index Data Service (GIDS 2.0). The computer glitches and flash crashes continue with frequency.
