New York Stock Exchange will loosen trading floor restrictions – About Your Online Magazine


The New York Stock Exchange says its iconic trading session may become more crowded starting next week – the last sign of reopening in the country’s financial center.

Driving the news: Companies can increase the number of traders they have on the floor if all their employees have been vaccinated. They will be exempt from certain COVID protocols, such as random tests.

  • Traders will have to present proof of vaccination (photo of the state’s “Excelsior Pass” digital application or screenshot of the vaccination card), according to an internal memo obtained by Axios. The memo was first reported by Bloomberg.

The big picture: This is at a time when New York is looking to reopen fully and companies are drafting plans to return to the office.

  • Goldman Sachs will ask workers to come back next month, the New York Times reported today.
