Mini crash in general stock markets over the past 5 days.

Here is a chart showing the last 5 days action in the conventional stock market: the S&P 500 as an example.
As I write, the SPX is down for the day 18 points Tuesday and is below Monday afternoon's secondary low but is still above the Monday morning crash low:

and the Dow. Note the gaps both in price and in time on Monday's intraday chart , if you select bar or candlestick charts. Were there some meaningful trading halts then?
