Japan’s Mizuho Securities President Makoto Fukuda (L), accompanied by his company executive, bows his head to apologize at the Tokyo Stock Exchange 08 December 2005 night. Mizuho Securities was left saddled with an expected loss of more than 224 million USD after a typing error led to a botched trade that wreaked havoc on Asia’s biggest bourse. Japan’s leading security firm blamed a data input error for its accidental attempt 08 December to sell 600,000 shares in J-Com, more than 41 times the number of the Osaka-based telecom outsourcing firm’s outstanding shares.
