Trading on the Chicago Board Options Exchange was down for 17 minutes on Monday afternoon.

A spokesperson for the board says it was caused by a glitch in the system that records final sales and latest quotes for options exchanges across the country.

At least three other exchanges were also affected.

The Securities and Exchange Commission says it is monitoring the situation.
