The PureFunds ISE Cyber Security ETF was still well off its intraday low in midday trade Wednesday, but has pulled back from its high after the NYSE tweeted that the trading halt was not the result of a cyber breach. The ETF was down as much as 1.5% at its low, then started bouncing just before 12 p.m. Eastern, after the NYSE said it suspended trading in all issues. It turned fractionally positive slightly after noon, then started pulling back after the NYSE moved to assure investors that it wasn't hacked. Separately, shares of cyber security company FireEye Inc. were up 0.1%, but had been up as much as 2% slightly after noon.
