Stock watch: AAPL briefly drops below 200 before recovering to 246

The US Stock market today had a bit of a wild ride and AAPL certainly didn’t escape its effects. AAPL briefly traded as low as 199.25 before rocketing back up to 246, still nearly 10 points off the opening. 

According to CNBC, the selloff was triggered when a Citigroup trader entered a ‘b’ instead of an ‘m’ in selling off Proctor & Gamble shares (see video below).  Can this really happen?
