Mistakes Happen: Deutsche Bank Trading Error Costs $434 Million


The old trading saying goes, "Sell in May and go away."

The good news is that the firm was able to cancel the bulk of the remaining 700 contracts for the Nikkei 225 futures on the Osaka Securities Exchange (OSE), which—if the orders would have been filled—would have put the bank on the hook for another $181.6 billion.
