Two Atlanta firms are changing symbols on Wall Street. One hopes the move is temporary.

Effective today, PracticeWorks begins trading on Nasdaq. Its new symbol is PRWK.

Previously, the software and IT company which focuses on dentists and orthodontists, traded on the American Stock Exchange.

ebix.com, meanwhile, begins trading today on Nasdaq as EBIXD. The company has executed a reverse 1-for-8 stock split in an effort to drive up its stock price to $1 or higher and thus remain on the Nasdaq SmallCapMarket.

ebix, formerly known as Delphi Information Systems, will make an appeal to Nasdaq’s listing qualifications panel on Thursday.
