14:02 EDTFXCMFXCM boosts margin requirements on forex, gold
FXCM announced that starting Wednesday, January 21, it will increase margin requirements globally on forex instruments, as well as gold in its overseas jurisdictions. "The new margin requirements for its overseas jurisdictions will be consistent with the firm's most conservative margin requirements currently in place for clients of Forex Capital Markets," it stated. FXCM believes, "at this time, there is a high level of uncertainty in the currency markets that could destabilize markets throughout 2015." It added, "There are two major upcoming news events which may cause significant volatility: the ECB Bank Rate Decision on Thursday and the Greek Election on Sunday. FXCM's decision to increase margin requirements is in order to protect clients during extreme market volatility."

16:23 EDTFXCMOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks began the session in positive territory, but the major averages were unable to hold their early gains. Lackluster earnings reports, the falling price of oil, and lowered global growth expectations appeared to be too much to overcome after a three day holiday weekend. The Dow led the way lower and had losses of more than 100 points before reversing and slowly paring its losses. Late in the day the averages made it back to positive ground, as investors await the next round of earnings due out after the close. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the NAHB homebuilder sentiment index fell to 57 in January, missing expectations for it to hold steady at 58. In China, Q4 GDP growth of 7.3% came in slightly better than expected, though that puts the nation's 2014 GDP growth at 7.4%, which was the lowest reported in 24 years. Of note, the International Monetary Fund cut its forecast for global growth in 2015 to 3.5% and in 2016 to 3.7%, which were both revised down by 0.3% relative to the organization's October 2014 outlook. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) led all decliners on the Dow Jones Industrial Average with a drop of $2.75, or 2.64%, to $101.29 after its Q4 earnings were nearly in-line and its FY15 outlook failed to spur buying of the stock... Morgan Stanley (MS) declined 14c, or 0.4%, to $34.75 after the firm became the latest in the financial space to report headline earnings that missed expectations. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Smith & Wesson (SWHC), which rose $1.65, or 16.47%, to $11.67 after the gunmaker increased its financial guidance and said it has seen recent, positive trends in the primary indicators it uses to assess its business and the consumer firearm market. Also higher was Orbitz Worldwide (OWW), which jumped 79c, or 8.62%, to $9.95 after Bloomberg reported that the online travel agency is working with an adviser to contact potential buyers and has drawn interest from private-equity funds and "other Internet companies." Among the noteworthy losers was FXCM (FXCM), which plunged $11.03, or 87.33%, to $1.60 after the stock reopened following the company struck a $300M rescue agreement with Leucadia (LUK) and gave further details on that deal over the weekend. Also lower were shares of Redbox owner Outerwall (OUTR), which fell $15.72, or 20.21%, to $62.05 after the company announced that its CEO had stepped down. INDEXES: The Dow rose 3.66, or 0.02%, to 17,515.23, the Nasdaq gained 20.46, or 0.44%, to 4,654.85, and the S&P 500 advanced 3.13, or 0.15%, to 2,022.55.
