Who is the biggest swinging local in the Eurostoxx 50 futures contract on Eurex?

And how much size does he have?

Largest trades today: 5000 lots at 14:50:37, 5,254 lots at 18:01:21. Don't know who, I'm afraid.

1.6m traded so far.

Interesting stats Grant. How did you get them? Can they be found on a bloomberg terminal?

Toxic,

Bit slow on the uptake, I'm afraid. Very good.

Enterthe,

Taken from a tick chart. See accompanying .doc file.

Maybe Toxic can let us know when he intends to hit or take. Iceberg composed of 1-lots.

Matt,

A "lot" is one contract. The value of one Euro Stoxx contract is Eu 10.00 x contract value, eg Stoxx at 6000, one contract value = 6000 x 10 = Eu 60,000 or c. £40,800 for our patriotic English readers.

It started as a personal punt, went wrong and ended up in a few discretionary clients' accounts (plus comm's, of course, so I was still quids in).

Enterthe,

It was touch-and-go, I tell you, mate.

I ‘phoned Mervyn King and said, “Help me on this one, Merv, you owe me”. He replied, “No more Mr Nice Guy, punk”.

So I thought, well bail this out, BoE. This rest you know.

In all modesty, great traders can lose, but they make sure someone else loses more.

Grant.
