Exchange operator Nasdaq OMX Group Inc. ( NDAQ ) traded in positive territory Tuesday even as it briefly shut down certain operations due to a data issue. Shares did retreat to the lower end of a session range of $35.70 to $36.04 as the shutdown was implemented, and moved up from those levels as exchange trading resumed. The stock's 52-week range is $22.63 to $36.25.
