Trading has been temporarily halted on the NASDAQ stock exchange this afternoon due to technical issues at the exchange.

The exchange, home to many popular technology stocks, is the trading platform for Apple, Microsoft, Ebay, Yahoo and Facebook stock.

A spokesperson from the Securities and Exchange Commission said that the agency is monitoring the situation.

No estimated time of resolution has been announced by the exchange or regulators yet.

As of 1 p.m. ET, the NASDAQ was frozen at 3631, showing a gain of 31 points.

This is the second issue the exchange has suffered this week. Earlier, another technological glitch prevented all trading in stock options.
