rading Error at Major Firm Blamed For Selloff

By: with Reuters

A human trading error at a major firm was the root cause of Thursday's sudden, 9 percent selloff in U.S. stocks, sources told CNBC.

* Stocks Plunge as Debt Worries Slam Markets
* Updated: The Biggest Market Drops in History
* Dow Plunges Amid Europe Lending Worries

Multiple sources said a trader entered the letter "b"—as in "billion"—when he or she meant to type "m," for "million," shortly before 2:47 p.m. New York time.

U.S. stocks plunged suddenly, briefly by more than 9 percent, before pulling back to a near 3 percent drop, as investor worries mounted that Greece's debt problems could spread.

Sources also told CNBC that the firm in question is Citigroup.

Citigroup [C 4.04 -0.14 (-3.35%) ] said it has no evidence of a bad trade but it is investigating the situation.

The New York Stock Exchange reported there were no computer glitches in its systems Thursday.

Separately, Nasdaq said it was working with other major markets to review the market activity that occurred between 2:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.

The markets went on a gigantic roller coaster on Thursday. The Street is asking Did Trading Error Worsen Market Plunge?

A dramatic drop in Procter & Gamble(PG) looks like the smoking gun. The stock went from $60 at around 2:45 pm ET to plunging below $40 in moments. The Dow Jones Industrial Average, which was already down triple digits, sank another 600 points in less than 15 minutes right around that time. It closed off roughly 350 points.

"That doesn't happen unless someone made a huge mistake," a trader that declined to be identified for this story told TheStreet about the P&G trade. The same trader said the latest speculation was that Citigroup(PG) was the firm behind the wrong trade, mistakenly putting in a 15 billion futures sell order, instead of a 15 million one, but the company would not confirm or deny that.

Citigroup Find No Evidence Of Trading Error

The facts seem to show Citigroup was not to blame. Please consider Citigroup Finds 'No Evidence' of Erroneous Trading

Citigroup Inc. said it found "no evidence" that it was involved in erroneous trades after U.S. equity markets plunged today.

"We, along with the rest of the financial industry, are investigating to find the source of today's market volatility," bank spokesman Stephen Cohen said in a statement. "At this point, we have no evidence that Citi was involved in any erroneous transaction."

New York Stock Exchange spokesman Rich Adamonis said "there were a number of erroneous trades" during a slide that took the Dow Jones Industrial Average down almost 1,000 points, its biggest intraday loss since 1987, before paring the decline. The Dow average ended the session down 347.8 points, or 3.2 percent, at 10,520.32 at 4 p.m.

The Nasdaq OMX Group Inc. said it's working with other markets to review transactions during the plunge. Procter & Gamble Co. said it's looking into electronic trading of the company's stock to determine whether the trades were made in error. Its shares sank as much as 37 percent and closed down 2.3 percent.

I do not doubt there were erroneous busted trades during the crash. However, there is no admission or indication by anyone that an erroneous trade caused this cascade.

Regardless of what anyone finds, a trading error did not cause this collapse. The market collapsed because it was ready to collapse. A retest is likely coming up, especially if shorts covered in that dramatic rise off the bottom.

SEC Said to Probe Causes, Exploitation of Stock-Market Turmoil
By David Scheer

May 7 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. regulators plan to examine whether securities professionals triggered yesterday’s stock- market plunge or exploited the turmoil to profit illegally, two people with direct knowledge of the matter said.

The Securities and Exchange Commission aims to determine if market participants accidentally or maliciously entered orders that derailed normal trading, the people said, declining to be identified because the inquiry isn’t public. The agency will also examine if controls to prevent the rout from snowballing weren’t in place at exchanges and firms.

SEC officials, who haven’t drawn conclusions, began preparing for inquiries in the hours after a U.S. selloff triggered by Europe’s debt crisis briefly erased more than $1 trillion in market value, beginning around 2:40 p.m. in New York. U.S. stocks tumbled the most in a year as waves of computerized trading exacerbated the rout, sparking a slide in Asian shares.

The SEC and Commodity Futures Trading Commission said in a joint statement after U.S. markets closed that they will examine “unusual trading” that contributed to the plunge.

“We will make public the findings of our review along with recommendations for appropriate action,” they said.

SEC spokesman John Nester declined to comment on the investigations. The regulator will also look at whether traders tried to take advantage of the chaos, such as by entering orders that drove some stocks to pennies, according to the two people.

Electronic Networks

NYSE Euronext spokesman Ray Pellecchia said sudden price moves in multiple stocks reached so-called liquidity replenishment points, prompting the exchange to slow trading in those shares as it tried to ensure an orderly market. Such incidences allow other exchanges to ignore NYSE price quotes.

Larry Leibowitz , chief operating officer of NYSE Euronext, said trades sent to electronic networks fueled the drop. While the first half of the Dow Jones Industrial Average’s 998.5-point plunge probably reflected normal trading, the decline snowballed as orders went to venues lacking liquidity to match them, he said in an interview with Bloomberg Television.

“If you look at the charts you can see fairly clearly where the trades came in,” he said from New York. “It’s that V-shaped drop where it came down and snapped right back up. You had some very high-cap stocks trading down 50 percent or large percentages in a split instant because there really was no liquidity in electronic markets.”

New York Stock Exchange spokesman Rich Adamonis said “there were a number of erroneous trades” during the slide. The Dow Jones index ended the session down 347.8 points, or 3.2 percent, to 10,520.32 at the close of trading.

90% Plunge

Accenture Plc, Exelon Corp. and Philip Morris International Inc. were among 27 U.S. stocks with at least $50 million in market value that dropped more than 90 percent as U.S. equities tumbled, before recovering by the close, according to Bloomberg data excluding exchange-traded funds.

Nasdaq OMX Group Inc. said 286 securities that rose or fell more than 60 percent during the stock-market’s plunge will have trades canceled. The exchange had no problems with its computer systems, spokesman Robert Madden said in a statement.

U.S. Representative Paul Kanjorski , a Pennsylvania Democrat, set a May 11 hearing to examine what caused stocks to plunge. He also sent a letter to SEC Chairman Mary Schapiro seeking the agency’s views on the incident, and asked what authority the SEC has to prevent futures crashes.

Thanks the Plunge Protection Team (PPT) :

The unusual circumstances that led the U.S. market to rally powerfully in 2009 might be explained by secret government moves to buy stocks, according to Charles Biderman, the founder and chief executive of TrimTabs, a research firm that tracks liquidity flows in the market.

“We cannot identify the source of the new money that pushed stock prices up so far so fast,” Biderman said in a statement Tuesday.

The source of approximately $600 billion net new cash necessary to lift the market’s overall capitalization by $6 trillion last year could not be identified by TrimTabs, Biderman said. The money, he said, didn’t come from traditional players such as companies, retail investors, foreign investors, hedge funds or pension funds.

“We know that the U.S. government has spent hundreds of billions of dollars to support the auto industry, the housing market, and the banks and brokers. Why not support the stock market as well?”

The Federal Reserve or the Treasury, Biderman said, could have easily manipulated the stock market by purchasing $60 to $70 billion worth of futures of the S&P 500 Index on a monthly basis.

Market analysts, however, were quick to debunk the theory. Yes, the government had a heavy hand in rescuing the financial system and the economy as the system started collapsing in late 2008 and throughout 2009. But the huge boosts of liquidity through the system found their way to stocks by the usual means, they said.

“The idea that this is magic is nonsense,” said Barry Ritholtz, market strategist at Fusion IQ and a market veteran. “This was a normal behavior in a recessionary bear market. We saw the Dow plunge 5,000 points in 6 months, which had never happened before and created a dramatically oversold market.”

Yes, the Federal Reserve slashed interest rates to near zero and Congress allowed banks to keep their bad loans off their books, allowing them to pretend they were solvent, he said.

But “you can’t short stocks when the Fed is at zero,” Ritholtz said. “Our own institutional clients came on board” as did other big institutional investors, he said.

Conspiracy theories about the so-called “plunge protection team,” or PPT, have been on the rise ever since the U.S. government started to bail out financial institutions in late 2008 under the administration of then-President George W. Bush, according to Dan Greenhaus, market strategist at Miller Tabak.

The PPT is a nickname given by some to a group established by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 after the 1987 stock crash to coordinate governmental response to market meltdowns.

Noting that the Fed has been buying Treasurys and mortgage-backed securities to keep interest rates low and support the economy, even firms such as Sprott Asset Management have started to accuse the U.S. government of running a Ponzi scheme.

“There’s a lot of backlash against the government right now and the hate for the Fed has gone into overdrive” in some corners, Greenhaus said. “The fact that the government stepped into the abyss [angered] a lot of people, and the fact that things are better a year later flies in the face of some long-held beliefs about free markets.”

As to the scale and power of the 2009 rally, it actually trailed previous recoveries from bear markets, according to research from Miller Tabak.

“While the absolute percentage gain off the recent lows has been more powerful than anything since the Depression era, there is no denying that historical rallies in the equity market have recouped a greater percentage of the declines from the highs,” Greenhaus wrote in a note.

The stock market, as measured by the S&P 500, plunged nearly 57% from its 2007 highs until it reached lows in March of 2009.
