Japanese broker makes £380 billion fat finger trade

Here is the city reports that a Japanese broker made a massive order by mistake.

The biggest order was for 57% of Toyota – 1.96bn shares of the world’s biggest carmaker

Fortunately he got away with it:

The unidentified broker was able to cancel the trades because they were made through the over-the-counter (OTC) market, which gives traders time to cancel before completion.
