WTF was that?
I saw the same thing! -150 ticks and back up again. Bad data or fat finger?
Bad tick. Low on Reuters is 115.52.
Must have been a fat finger.
Would have loved to have been the guy that got 1000 down at 114.00!
On T&S there were those trades on fast downmove...no true 'bad ticks'.. maybe a 33k sell-order or a trader may have
perhaps transposed the price for number of contracts sold...
I thought they had a max for market orders?
fat finger by a large local or institution...if they have the margin and there is no confirm order...et-voila'!
Hmm. The last chart that I saw had a market order max of 2000 for bund.
if those are nake shorts..a career could be on play...now let's wait for an Eurex announcement on burst trades; dunno their policy.
Sorry, was looking at wrong contract. It does show on
Reuters. 44000 contracts!! Somebody is on the hotseat!
