Trading at ICE temporarily halted by power shutdown

CHICAGO A spokeswoman in the company's Atlanta headquarters says power was out for nearly an hour Thursday morning following the emergency shutdown at ICE's primary data center in Chicago.

It took more than two more hours before futures markets were up and running again at 1 p.m. CDT.

The outage caused all orders to be suspended.

The company didn't provide further details about the cause. The exchange kept customers informed with brief updates on its Web site.
