I am wondering whether the "fat finger" was a "reaction" to Senators Cantwell and McCain introducing an amendment on Thursday aiming to restore safeguards modeled on the 1933 Glass-Steagall Act to the banking and financial reform legislation currently being debated in the U.S. Senate.

Most curious is the fact that, squarely in the eye of Thursday's market hurricane were Proctor & Gamble and 3M. It hardly seems the fate of these two companies hinges on events unfolding in the Euro-zone. Likewise, the trans-Atlantic banking system could suffer a spectacular collapse and both companies would no doubt survive.

Points you raise regarding the "who" and the "how" are informative and very much appreciated. The "why" might help isolate possibilities. That PG and MMM were targeted seems to make the "why" glaringly obvious.

The crash is most likely a chain effect of quant trading systems. There's 100x more capital following quant portfolio strategies than high frequency trading. The portfolios are constantly rehedging themselves.

The $4billion order by Waddell & Reed is not that big at all for the s&p future. There are hedge funds that trade that size everyday.

Perhaps a manipulator pushed the market until they snapped all the market makers 'rubber band' and they had to cover, causing an overshoot, but I don't think anyone with the kind of money to make that happen to the SPX future would risk regulator attention.

The SEC needs to be restructured. Elliot Spitzer with a staff of 5 in New York did more effectively policing of the markets by having a nose for good tipoffs than the SEC did with a staff of 4,000. Harry Markopolos was pounding on the SEC door with a sledge hammer and they couldn't hear it.


You've got to update this blog a bit more often.

Legitimate traders who make these errors fess up fast, and work with the guys at the other end to tweak the filters so there are no encores.
