Trading was called off in the nation's financial center in lower Manhattan on Monday, in the first shutdown due to weather in 27 years, and the longest shutdown in more than a century. Now the markets' operators will focus on trying to open for business on Wednesday, which is a key trading day because it marks the end of the month, when traders price portfolios.
