On this day in 1991 – Solomon Brothers trader Paul Mozer attempted to corner the U.S. Treasury market, illegally placing orders and buying 90% of the bills in the $12.26 billion auctions. The result would lead to a massive crisis at Solomon, turning Warren Buffett into its temporary chairman and nearly ruining the company. No one knew what Mozer had done until much later. However, newspapers reported strong demand for the bond auction. One trader described the auction as a “Very unusual auction” and that there seemed to be an “Isolated source of demand” for the securities. Little did they know, a rogue trader at the most infamous investment bank in Wall Street had broken the law.

Said bed is occupied by Brahim Ghali, the leader of the Western Sahara’s Polisario Front who got there via a pseudonymous entry to Spain. Seemingly Madrid authorities were aware of his arrival. A furious Moroccan government perceiving Spain supporting separatism (oh the Catalan irony) have thus left their sides of the border unguarded leading to thousands attempting to land in the Spanish territories to the south of Gibraltar, (Children Among 6,000 Migrants In Desperate Swim From Morocco To Spanish Enclave).”
