Default Too fat, too fast. The 1.6bn finger

Clear the streets there'll be one coming down from a 50th floor window any minute now

It is known as fat finger syndrome - the occasional tendency of stressed traders working in fast-moving electronic financial markets to press the wrong button on their keyboard and, in the process, lose their employer a mint. Yesterday it hit the Tokyo stock exchange, and in spectacular fashion. An unnamed and, presumably, shortly to be unemployed broker managed to sell shares worth 1.6bn in a local recruitment agency which, itself, carried only a market value of little more than 50m.
He fucked up
