Don't ask me how my day was, dear

You think your day at the office was bad? A Tokyo stock exchange trader 'mistyped an order and sold 610,000 shares for one yen instead of one share for 610,000 yen last December. A fault in the TSE's computer system meant the trade could not be cancelled and Mizuho lost $225m'. So he'll definitely be looking forward to his performance appraisal this year.
