The New York Stock Exchange shut its iconic trading floor and went fully electronic after two individuals from the building tested positive for coronavirus, or COVID-19, last week. Since then, sources tell Yahoo Finance at least five other individuals from the floor have also tested positive for the virus.
“I definitely feel very disconnected from the world and disconnected from the market,” Jonathan Corpina, Senior Managing Partner at Meridian Equity Partners, told Yahoo Finance’s “The First Trade” on Monday.
Sitting in a home office is not the same as the floor where “you can see the lights, you can hear the noise, you can hear the volume changing back-and-forth,” he adds.
