NYSE floor traders have been hearing the same rumblings we have about a possible early close of the NYSE today, but it appears they’re out of luck.

Says one guy on the floor:

I’m down on the NYSE floor, and there is no way we are getting an early close…..we have gotten 3-4 emails confirming that…I have heard a lot of chatter from clients, but its not going to happen…sorry, i wish

So, there you go. Good luck catching the train home.
