Florida Man Admits Insider Trading for Passing Gilead Tip

Many investors had expected the Fed to start gradually winding down the program, but instead the central bank in its Sept. 18 policy statement said that it would maintain its $85 billion monthly purchases for the time being. The decision led investors to hit the brakes on plans to adjust their portfolios, traders and analysts said, and less activity meant less money for banks’ fixed-income trading desks. “From what I can see, it’s mainly weaker activity levels – activity levels are just very low,” said Richard Ramsden, an analyst who covers banks for Goldman Sachs.

UPDATE 1-Wall St banks likely stung again by bad bond-trading quarter

Schiano deferred to general manager Mark Dominik, then added, “As long as he’s a Buccaneer, then he will be a member of this team and do the things we do.” WEEK 4 TAKEAWAYS: Backup QBs find a spark It’s time to stop that charade. Schiano made it clear with the switch that he doesn’t want Freeman despite contending repeatedly that Freeman gave the Bucs their best chance at winning and there’s no turning back now. Freeman was the starting quarterback for the first three games one of which would have been won without a boneheaded penalty by linebacker Lavonte David , another that might have been won if Rian Lindell hadn’t missed a 40-yard field goal. But with Schiano insisting Freeman will “do the things we do,” Freeman wasn’t even deemed worthy to be on the sideline for Sunday’s game. Typically, a former starter would exchange strategical observations with the quarterback between series. There are conflicting versions of how it all went down after Freeman discussed the situation during a Saturday meeting with quarterbacks coach John McNulty and a follow-up session on Sunday with Schiano.
