The Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission banned Abbie Yip Ka Ying, a former trader with BNP Paribas in HK, from the industry for 18 months for attempting to hide an erroneous foreign exchange spot trade. According to SFC, Ms. Ying made the erroneous trade on June 24, 2015, and took affirmative steps to conceal her loss of US $58,000 by requesting a trader split the loss over two days; manually re-booking the loss in the wrong portfolio; not reflecting the loss in the required daily reports; failing to advise her supervisor regarding the loss; and misleading her supervisor when asked.
