06:58 EDTMS, ICE, NDAQ, KCG, UBS, C, CSDark markets could cause more harm than high-frequency trading, Reuters says
After a book by financial author Michael Lewis sparked worries that high-speed traders have been rigging the U.S. stock market, former regulators and academics say a more serious threat to investors could be the increasing amount of trading that happens outside of exchanges, reported Reuters. Top internalizers include units of KCG Holdings (KCG), Citadel, UBS (UBS), and Citigroup (C). Dark pool operators include Credit Suisse (CS) and Morgan Stanley (MS). In an attempt to earn back some of the retail orders, exchanges such as IntercontinentalExchange Group's (ICE) New York Stock Exchange, Nasdaq (NDAQ), and BATS Global Markets, have allowed brokerages to place dark pool-style orders on their platforms, with the trade hidden until after it is executed.

16:23 EDTKCGKCG Holdings to cut 4% of workforce, to recognize pre-tax charge of $5M-$6M
KCG Holdings disclosed in a regulatory filing that on September 2, KCG Holdings commenced a workforce reduction plan. This action is designed to rationalize redundancies, improve efficiency and realign resources to areas with a greater potential for future growth. The workforce reduction plan impacts approximately 4% of KCGs workforce, and will be completed by early October. KCG currently estimates that it will recognize a pre-tax charge in connection with the workforce reduction of $5M to $6M during the third quarter. The charge is expected to consist of severance, other one-time termination benefits, and other associated costs. KCG expects $3M to $4Mon of these charges to result in future cash expenditures. In addition to the charges associated with this workforce reduction plan, KCG estimates that it will recognize additional pre-tax charges of approximately $6M to $7M in connection with other employee separations that occurred during the third quarter.

06:39 EDTCS, UBSEuropean banks take out EUR83B of loans from central bank, NY Times says
European banks agreed to take out EUR83B in low interest loans from the European Central Bank, as part of a program in which all of the funds must be loaned to businesses or individuals, or repaid to the central bank within two years, according to The New York Times. Several analysts had said that they would be disappointed if banks took out less than EUR100B in loans, but a number of analysts said that a second round of the program, due to occur in December after stress tests have been completed, may be more popular, the newspaper stated. Publicly traded European banks include Banco Santander (SAN), Barclays (BCS), Credit Suisse (CS), Deutsche Bank (DB), HSBC (HSBC), ING Groep (ING), Lloyds Banking (LYG), Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) and UBS (UBS).
