Trader Error caused Biggest Market Drops in History

May 7th, 2010 3 comments

Yesterday is truly the craziest day in the stock exchange history. It’s only happen about half-hours which began shortly after 2.p.m ET and the Dow plunge nearly 1000 points (S&P 500 plunge nearly 100 points) before up again to pare its losses. And all of these seems triggered by a trader error who entered a billion instead of a million for his trade. There still further investigation for this market volatility.

Bull Strikes Back

July 18th, 2009 No comments

The market movement last week unpredictable. Good earning data from some big company (Intel, Goldman Sach, etc) seems success to built optimism belong investors. That’s why i cut loss 2 of my bear position as you can see on my previous trade. I speculate for break down signal and enter very small amount of short position of MAR and ES Futures. But it become false signal, after the index rebound strongly after Intel Earning Report. So with the seasonality that take side on bearish (JULY – AUGUST – SEPTEMBER usually be worst months of the year every year), market move the opposite way.
