Sport Chalet Is Latest U.S. Stock Halted by Circuit Breakers
Sport Chalet Inc. (SPCHB) is the latest U.S. stock halted by circuit breakers implemented in June 2010.
The curbs were created after the 20-minute rout on May 6, 2010, erased $862 billion from the value of U.S. shares before prices rebounded. New rules proposed by exchanges on April 5, 2011, would shift the market to a limit-up/limit-down system that prevents shares from moving more than a certain amount.
