Dog Detective

An investigation into attempted foreign-exchange market manipulation has found evidence of more potential malfeasance, according to Dow Jones.

Both JP Morgan and Citigroup - which have already made settlements related to the forex investigations - have recently fired or suspended workers in part because of the probe, Dow Jones reported, citing sources familiar with the matter.

The wire also reported that investigators may be newly examining UBS's wealth-management business-the probe had previously been focused on traders and investment banking salespeople.
