The News: Capital Markets Cuts at BofA

Bank of America will cut several thousand employees from its capital markets business beginning this week, according to a report in the Financial Times. Most of the layoffs, which result from the consolidation of sales and trading activities in the wake of the Merrill Lynch acquisition, will be in New York. The FT says capital markets headcount will drop by 30 to 40 percent, or about 4,000 jobs.
