Trading on two online exchanges has suspended after regulators issued an alert that alcohol is prohibited on the trading sites.
The alert came after the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission issued a temporary suspension of alcohol-related trading on two exchanges, the trading platform trading post and the trading firm PEACemaker Trading Post, the SEC said.
The SEC said it will suspend trading on trading on PEACemakers Trading Post and PEACestrade, both of which are part of the trading platforms trading post.
The two trading platforms were closed for a brief period of time to allow the trading of goods and services to be suspended.
The companies did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
The trading platforms are based in the United States and have been used to trade stocks, bonds, commodities, and currencies.
The trading platforms’ main trading hubs are in New York and Chicago, and the company that runs them, PEACers Trading Post LLC, has been based in those cities since 2007.
The companies have a combined market capitalization of $1.3 billion.
The firms suspended trading after receiving an alert from the SEC’s Bureau of Enforcement that the companies are no longer able to conduct business as usual.
“The companies are suspending trading on the PEACeries Trading Post.
The company is also temporarily suspending trading in the trading on both the trading post sites, the company said in a statement.
The suspension of trading will last approximately one week,” the statement said.
“These temporary suspensions will be lifted once the companies resume normal trading.”
The trading sites are part, in part, of the U:S.-based trading platform tradepulse.
The sites allow people to trade in securities, commodities and currencies on their own computers.
The U.K.-based exchange is a more traditional and well-known platform, but it is not regulated by the SEC.
The SEC said that the trading websites will be allowed to continue operating.
