While we have grown accustomed to the daily gyrations on mega-volume in the US equity markets, it seems the HFT-virus has spread as far afield as India this evening. India’s National Stock Exchange was halted – with no price dissemination – as State Bank of India plunged over 14% in seconds on massive relative volume (and HDFC and Infosys also fell), dragging the Nifty Index down 3%. Of course, the ‘error’ is being investigated and SBIN has recovered its losses…

*STATE BANK OF INDIA SHARES FALL 14% ON NATIONAL STOCK EXCHANGE
