Knight Capital says to discontinue correspondent clearing

Thomas M. Joyce, Chairman and CEO, Knight Capital Group. "The financial results for the quarter were negatively impacted by the steep year over year declines in consolidated U.S. equity volume and market volatility as well as the write-down of an investment and heightened professional fees. As previously disclosed, Knight announced a merger with GETCO LLC during the fourth quarter, which will create a true category leader among market makers and agency brokers. Separately, as part of our continuing efforts to align and focus resources, Knight will consolidate the full service and electronic institutional equities sales teams as well as discontinue correspondent clearing."
