14:19 EDTAMTD, IBKR, ETFC, SCHWE-Trade slides after report of FINRA probe
Shares of discount broker E-TRADE Financial (ETFC) are lower in afternoon trading after the New York Post said regulators are investigating the firm's order routing practices. WHAT'S NOTABLE: According to the Post, the Financial Regulatory Authority, or FINRA, is looking into how E-TRADE priced customer orders it routed to G1 Execution Services, a company that E-TRADE once owned but sold recently to Susquehanna. At issue, the Post says, is whether E-TRADE is putting its profit drive ahead of its customer's best interest. Also of note, the SEC is said to be looking into changes that would require brokerages to disclose more in their "best execution" practices. PRICE ACTION. Shares of E-TRADE are down a bit over 3% in afternoon trading to $21.68. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the discount broker space include TD Ameritrade (AMTD), Charles Schwab (SCHW) and Interactive Brokers (IBKR).

06:46 EDTSCHWFee prices on mutual funds, ETFs sliding towards zero, WSJ says
There is intense fee price competition occurring in the asset management sector as several fund firms, including BlackRock (BLK), Charles Schwab (SCHW), and others, cut fees on their passive products close to 0%, the Wall Street Journal reports. The competition is suppressing industry margins and building a greater impetus for firms to achieve scale, the report says. The slide in costs have been under way for years but is accelerating as the sector's largest companies are targeting increasingly cost-obsessed investors, the report says. Over 100 mutual funds and exchanged-traded funds currently cost $10 or less per $10,000 invested, up from 40 in 2010, the report says, citing Morningstar. Reference Link
