After months of electronic-only trading, the New York Stock Exchange is set to reopen the trading floor today. But rather than the bustling images we've grown accustomed to, floor brokers will return in smaller numbers, wear protective masks and socially distance.
CNN's Alison Kosik talked to Jonathan Corpina, a senior managing partner with Meridian Equity Partners, about the reopening, coming up just moments from now.
"It’s exciting to be back. This is clearly a date that we have been waiting for. And to walk back in the building, I was just saying to somebody on the floor downstairs, it feels like your first day of school," he said.
Corpina said he'd usually take the train in — but today he walked. On his way in, people were getting temperature checks and signing wavers.
"What that new norm is we don’t know yet, but we’re starting to get to our norm here," he said.
