According to the explanation given by CSE to daily FT the trade that effected 5% drop in MPI index is just 1200 of DIST shares, ok will assume that someone has erroneously entered selling price as 100 instead 149.60 the closing balance, that means 49.60 X 1200 = 59,520 my question is this how can MPI drop by 5% from an error trade that the difference is just 59,520. Please correct me if i am wrong

The MPI didn't drop 5% only because of the DIST trade. It was about 3% down already at that time. And MPI/ASI is not calculated based on the amount of the trade but on the price of the share.

We cant say that its an error trade,hw u say?

IMO this cant be a wrong trade.,if this was a wrng trade thn our CSE system is a nutcase..

CSE web site still show it as the lowest traded price, if this an error trade they should have removed this from the system

Gods, U mean 50K or even 120K can get the MPI 2% down even if the calc is done in above way???
OMG... I never felt that..

So if this is tru... If one has 3000 DIST, and if no buyer comes near 140 mark, if he started disposing all 3000, from 140 to say 120 range, Will MPI go down 10%?

We have to consider the market cap. of other 24 companies too.Otherwise everyday we could have a market halt.

The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function. One should, for example, be able to see that things are hopeless and yet be determined to make them otherwise.

Anyway I think that transaction, I believe most probably a genuine accident, saved the day. If not for that index would have fallen further than that. It just gave a reason just like people attribute the down fall to credit, SEC rules, etc.

My question is can we say it as a error trade? coz if some one accidentally put DIST sell order 1200 @ 100 how it execute. According to the theory it should match highest buyer bid. So at that time 100.00 is the highest buy bid for DIST ? Can anybody please explain this
