NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. exchange operator BATS Global Markets said on Tuesday afternoon its largest exchange had stopped accepting orders.
A BATS spokesman declined to comment, saying the stock exchange was still working to uncover the root of the issue.
The problem at the BZX exchange, which month-to-date has a 7.63 percent U.S. equities market share, was the first since March 23, 2012, when a technical glitch prevented BATS' attempted initial public offering.
