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).
