Phew!

I have never seen that in all my years. Dow off 1000 points in moments. Each few sec was 100 point movement. The Algo's went mental.

CNBC trying to explain the crash away with "fat finger error". Another reason is that automated trading has caused a "snowball" effect.

Nice charts there MF. Nice panic and recovery too, all in the space of a day. BIg bucks for the day traders with big b*lls :D. I bet a load of numpties sold near the bottom.

I'm pi**ed with yahoo. I monitor the markets on an end of day basis and whenever there is some good market action, yahoo(free data) fails to provide the market data around the same time. In this case yesterdays data is missing for UK markets

Barclays just got richer? A good day for the Saudi-loan-merchants then (means bugger all to the Brits, but don't let that put a dampener on things)

Trader error reported: apparently typed billion instead of million.

What this shows (apart from general incompetence of traders) is that single market can be massively shifted by a very small number of participants.

CNBC who are politically motivated would have you believe its a trading error

Quote from Ashraf Laidi, Analyst: "NYSE EURONEXT CEO does NOT think that one bank traded wrong number of shares.".

I saw none of this on the news today... what's going on? £ down below $1.50... ALL my company funds are in $US right now. Not sure it's a good idea to be playing the 4X market with my company £/$ accounts though?
