Morgan Stanley, one of the world’s biggest wealth managers, said its online trading portal for wealthy clients went down on Wednesday.

Retail brokerages have suffered sporadic outages this month amid unprecedented volatility and volume in markets amid the coronavirus crisis. 

When Morgan Stanley announced last month it was purchasing online brokerage E-Trade for $13 billion in stock, part of the rationale for the deal was to acquire the company’s retail trading technology.
