http://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/news/malfunctioning-bitcoin-trader-bot-causes-extremely-high-volume-bitcoin-exchange-btc-e/2014/08/31

Another day, another bit of unusual trading activity on a Bitcoin exchange. As the Bitcoin price began to drop around 1 AM EST last night, at least one trading bot on BTC-e began to make some interesting trades. It seems that the trading bot has been caught in an endless loop, as it continues to either trade back and forth with itself or with other bots on the exchange. The unfortunate trading activity was first pointed out by Reddit user /u/nobodybelievesyou on /r/BitcoinMarkets. The details behind the bot or bots associated with this increase in trading volume are unknown at this time, but it’s obvious that something has gone horribly wrong.
