According to DealBook, US officials will seek the arrests of two JPMorgan employees based in London for covering up the $6 billion loss…
Those trades soured last year, racking up steep losses for the bank. JPMorgan, which initially disclosed the problem last May, has since announced that the losses reached more than $6 billion.
