The New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) has levied a fine of $150 million against Barclays over the bank's use of last look on its electronic trading systems, pushing the total bill for the forex investigation to $635 million for the UK bank.
As part of the penalty, the bank was also forced to let go an unnamed global head of electronic fixed income, currencies and commodities (eFicc) automated flow trading, who the NYDFS said "played a role in the misconduct".
