Continuity mistake: At the end of Margot Robbie's scene she picks up the champagne flute from her bathtub. The camera angle changes and she is no longer holding it, then picks it up again.

Continuity mistake: When Jared is demonstrating the CDS/CDO using Jenga blocks the pike is standing, then shortly afterwards it's knocked over.
