Fed sanctions former Barclays trader for alleged abuse


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Federal Reserve on Friday said it was seeking to permanently bar a former Barclays Bank employee from the banking business for allegedly manipulating foreign exchange trades.


The Fed sought to bar Peter Little from the industry and fine him $487,500 for allegedly using chatrooms to wrongly coordinate trades.


The action follows a Fed action in May 2015 when officials fined Barclays $342 million for unsafe and unsound practices related to foreign exchange markets.


Little could not be immediately reached for comment.
