I've been querying the MtGox trade data recently and came across an entry on 09/08/2012:

TradeID: 1344515801056587
Amount: 0.00000102
Price: 1000000000.00000
TimeStamp: 2012-08-09 12:36:41

Thats right, a $1 billion trade. This is messing up my number crunching.

Questions:

... I'm assuming this is anomalous and can be deleted, why is it in MtGox's trade history if it isn't a valid trade?

If its correct, how was it a valid trade?

Why does this trade not show up on any of the charting sites?

What happened that day?

It was a bug.

I might ask someone from mtgox to have this removed as a bugged trade should not show up on their trade history...

Considering that the entire 21 000 000 coins that arent even totally in existence yet isnt even worth $1 000 000 000 then its obviously an error of sorts.
