"rogue trader"

"流氓交易員"

英國報摘
英國各大報紙今天都在第一版刊登了一幅相同的照片,就是法國興業銀行31歲的交易員熱羅姆﹒克維爾的照片。

據報道,他在股市上的交易讓興業銀行損失了50億歐元。現在,各家報紙都把它稱作是流氓交易員。

《泰晤士報》發表的一篇評論說,克維爾讓他的老板賠了50億歐元,但這意味著他讓別人賺了50億歐元,因為市場上的錢不會跑掉,可以說他創造了5000個百萬富翁。對這些人來說,他是英雄。

克維爾讓興業銀行損失了50億歐元
《泰晤士報》的這篇評論的確強調了交易市場管理方面的漏洞。評論說,克維爾既然能讓銀行損失50億,他就完全有可能讓銀行損失5000億,他有這樣作的動機和手段。如果是那樣,這家法國第二大銀行就會倒閉,在全球金融市場造成恐慌。

《衛報》的一篇評論說,克維爾作為“流氓交易員”肯定是已經被載入史冊。但是人們現在還不清楚,他是不是應該為星期一全球 股市的暴跌負責。如果情況的確如此,那他的作用就更大了,因為星期一股市的暴跌又促使美國中央銀行采取了20多年來最大膽的降息措施。目前,金融界也在討 論這個問題。





Police interrogate "rogue trader"

這 rogue trader 一般報紙都翻譯為"流氓交易員"
有點費解 英文都用 括號
"rogue trader"
其實這是專業術語
意思偏向"單打獨豪賭之交易員"

A trader who acts independently of others - and, typically, recklessly - usually to the detriment of both the clients and the institution that employs him or her. In most cases this type of trading is high risk and can create huge losses.

Investopedia Says:
The most famous rogue trader is Nick Leeson, who was a derivatives trader at the Singapore office of Britain's Barings Bank. Leeson incurred heavy losses through the unauthorized trading of large amounts of Nikkei futures and options. Leeson took large derivative positions on the Nikkei which leveraged the amount of money at stake in the trades.

The French share trader alleged to be at the centre of a massive fraud unveiled at France's second biggest bank, Société Générale has been detained by Paris police.

Jerome Kerviel is being interrogated at the headquaters of the financial police.

It's alleged he lost his employers nearly five billion euros after making huge, risky bets on stocks and then seeing the markets plunge in the wake of the US mortgage crisis. Prosecutors have opened a preliminary investigation and shareholders have filed a suit against the bank for misconduct.



As the recriminations continue, many question how the rogue trader was able to operate alone. In an additional twist, the bank has said Kerviel might not have personally benefited from his alleged fraudulent transactions.
