08:01 EDTUSBU.S. Bank says to wind down Checking Account Advance
U.S. Bank will begin to wind down its short-term, small-dollar deposit advance product, Checking Account Advance, to align with final regulatory guidance issued by the Office of Comptroller of the Currency and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. “We recognize our customers’ need for short-term, small dollar credit,” said Kent Stone, vice chairman of consumer banking sales and support at U.S. Bank. “We are committed to finding new solutions that meet the needs of all of our customers and fit within the current regulatory expectations.” Effective Friday, Jan. 31, U.S. Bank will no longer offer Checking Account Advance to new checking account customers. Checking Account Advance will be discontinued for current customers on May 30. Customers who have an outstanding balance at that time will be offered extended repayment terms. U.S. Bank will offer other forms of credit to customers who qualify.

Publicly traded companies in the space include Bank of America (BAC), Citi (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan (JPM), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB), Wells Fargo (WFC), and Cardtronics (CATM).

13:26 EDTUSBBanks, brokers slide as weak jobs report pushes out rate hike
Shares of banks and brokers are sliding after a weak jobs report pushed out the probability of near-term rate hike. WHAT'S NEW: Friday morning, the Labor Department reported that the U.S. economy added only 142,000 jobs in September compared to economists expectations of 203,000. The Labor Department's September jobs report strengthened the argument that the Fed will not raise rates in October, and even lessened the probability of a December rate hike. An increase in interest rates would let banks and brokers benefit from higher spreads on deposits. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Bank of America (BAC), Citigroup (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan (JPM), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB), and Wells Fargo (WFC) are all declining despite a rebound in the broad market. OTHERS TO WATCH: Shares of online brokers, including TD Ameritrade (AMTD), Charles Schwab (SCHW), E*TRADE (ETFC), and Interactive Brokers (IBKR) are also lower in afternoon trading.
