Kweku Adoboli, the London based UBS trader alleged to have lost UBS $2bn (£1.3bn) in unauthorised trading, has been charged with fraud.
According to net sources he was born 15 September 1980, making him a Sun Jupiter Saturn in Virgo, sextile Uranus (Moon) in Scorpio, square Neptune with Mars in Scorpio.
There are some similarities with Nick Leeson, the trader who brought Barings Bank to its knees and Jerome Kerviel, the French rogue trader who cost Societe Generale nearly 5 billion euros.
