Options exchanges, including NYSE Amex Options and CBOE Holdings, were shaken Tuesday when Goldman Sachs Group sent erroneous orders for options on certain stocks and exchange-traded funds. The exchanges said officials are looking into the trades and that some might be canceled. "The exchanges are working to resolve the issue," said a Goldman spokesman. "Neither the risk nor the potential loss is material to the financial condition of the firm."
