Faces In The News
Oil Broker Hit By Rogue Trader

Javier Espinoza, 07.02.09, 01:45 PM EDT
A rogue trader has allegedly struck a London oil broker, costing the firm $10 million.

LONDON -- An employee at an oil futures company in London has allegedly made unauthorized trades that cost the company almost $10 million, prompting fresh concerns on the security of financial trading and about oversight on various prop desks.

PVM Oil Futures Ltd said it had been a victim of unauthorized trading on Tuesday.
Article Controls

"As a result of a series of unauthorized trades, substantial volumes of futures contracts were held by PVM. When this was discovered, the positions were closed in an orderly fashion. PVM suffered a loss totaling a little under $10 million," the company said.

The company won't disclose the identity of the dealer citing legal reasons, but the trades were made during the quiet morning hours in London. The alleged rogue trader is still employed by the company but he or she has been suspended and the firm is considering legal action. The company continues operations and nobody else has left the company's employ since the unauthorized trading was revealed.

Both the London Brent and New York Nymex crude oil prices leaped by almost $2 a barrel to their highest point this year following the transactions. PVM will not say how much $10 million represents of its earnings but the company's website says it trades 100 million barrels a day over the counter as well as future trades.

Though the security breach prompted an investigation by the British financial authorities, city experts said it is almost impossible to regulate rogue traders. "You can never legislate on rouge traders. They will always find a way to hide mistakes or hide anything else that it's not legitimate," said Richard Crossley of Merchant Securites.

This is not the first time the city falls victim of rogue trading. In May, the FSA banned a former Morgan Stanley ( MS - news - people ) trader who built up a hefty unauthorized oil futures position following a long liquid lunch, before hiding the deals overnight.
