Global traders might find it a choppy Asian morning but the Bloomberg reports trading halt at CME Group Inc. to be the reason for less volatility across eurodollars to metals, grains, crude oil and natural gas since 8:40 a.m. in Singapore.

The Bloomberg news mentions that “Due to technical issues, all CME Globex markets have been halted,” a CME Group spokesperson said in an email.  

All CME global exchanges are on a halt.

Millions of contracts tracking the S&P 500, Dow Jones Industrial Average and Nasdaq 100 trade every weekday virtually around the clock on the CME.  

For eight hours each night after extended trading ends on exchange-traded funds, they are effectively the only way to express a view on the biggest U.S. equity indexes.
