The night before the New York Stock Exchange temporarily suspended trading due to an “internal technical issue,” the hacker collective Anonymous had a cryptic message for Wall Street on Twitter.
“Wonder if tomorrow is going to be bad for Wall Street…. we can only hope,” said the tweet posted at 11:45 p.m. Tuesday.

The NYSE said it was experiencing a technical issue Wednesday afternoon and said it was not the result of a cyberbreach. Both the Department of Homeland Security and the White House said there was no indication of malicious actor involvement.
“We’re experiencing a technical issue that we’re working to resolve as quickly as possible,” the NYSE said in a statement. “We’re doing our utmost to produce a swift resolution & will be providing further updates as soon as we can.”
