Fat fingers strike again. This time Huadian Power International’s (01071.HK) turnover jumped to HK$3.68 billion near closing Monday as a broker put in an accidental bid, the Hong Kong Economic Journal reported Tuesday.
Around 3:49 PM before closing, a broker bought 620,000 shares for HK$5,860 per share, or about 1,340 times the market price at the time, the paper said.
A Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Ltd. (00388.HK) spokesman was quoted as saying the transaction will be cancelled Tuesday.
Huadian closed up 0.2 percent at HK$4.38 Monday.
