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.

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.
