12:10 EDTCOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street began the session in positive territory, with the Dow notching a new all-time high, but had slid into negative ground at midday. The Nasdaq is the biggest loser, as it is down more than 0.6%, while the Dow and Nasdaq are just slightly below the flat line. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims rose to 326K in the week ended March 29, versus the expected 319K claims. The trade deficit widened to $42.3B in February from a revised $39.3B deficit in January. ISM's non-manufacturing PMI rose 1.5 points to 53.1 in March, though that was a bit below the 53.5 forecast of economists. In Europe, the ECB maintained its current rates despite the ongoing debate over disinflationary forces posing an increasing risk. In Asia, China's State Council announced a stimulus package for new railways and subways, low-income housing and tax breaks for small business, but most of the measures were part of the government's previously communicated annual economic work plan. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Barnes & Noble (BKS) are declining after Liberty Media (LMCA) announced a deal to reduce its stake in the bookseller. Liberty said it has sold the majority of its shares to institutional buyers and will retain approximately 10% of its initial investment, which has been reported to equate to a roughly 2% stake in Barnes & Noble. B&N Chairman Leonard Riggio said that Liberty’s reduced ownership gives the company greater flexibility to pursue various strategic options, but shares of B&N slid 13% following the announcement... Citigroup (C) shares fell almost 2% after The New York Times said the federal government has started a criminal investigation into alleged fraud involving Citi's Banamex unit in Mexico. Also of note, research firm Sterne Agee downgraded the stock to Neutral, citing the Fed's refusal to approve the bank's capital plan, along with its slowing earnings growth and lack of catalysts, as reasons for the downgrade. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Amyris (AMRS), which rose 8% after announcing that it is entering into a strain engineering research and development agreement with chemical giant BASF (BASFY). Also higher was chemical, paint, and coating maker RPM (RPM), which gained 4% and hit a fresh 52-week high earlier in the session after the company raised its fiscal 2014 profit outlook. Among the noteworthy losers was Liquidity Services (LQDT), which slid another 12% after the company confirmed it's withdrawal from auction bidding for a U.S. Department of Defense contract and said it will need to reset its adjusted earnings expectations. Also lower were shares of weight-loss drug maker VIVUS (VVUS), which fell nearly 8% following a downgrade to Underweight at Piper Jaffray. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 16.31, or 0.1%, to 16,556.69, the Nasdaq was down 26.65, or 0.62%, to 4,249.81, and the S&P 500 was down 3.48, or 0.18%, to 1,887.42.

11:08 EDTSCHWCharles Schwab says HFT a 'growing cancer' that needs to be addressed
In a statement on The Charles Schwab Corporation website, the company made the following statement in part on high-frequency trading: "Schwab serves millions of investors and has been observing the development of high-frequency trading practices over the last few years with great concern. As we noted in an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal last summer, high-frequency trading has run amok and is corrupting our capital market system by creating an unleveled playing field for individual investors and driving the wrong incentives for our commodity and equities exchanges. The primary principle behind our markets has always been that no one should carry an unfair advantage. That simple but fundamental principle is being broken." Publicly traded companies in the space include Charles Schwab (SCHW ), E-Trade (ETFC) and TD Ameritrade (AMTD). .Reference Link
