Getco's $1.4B bid for Knight Capital (KCG) gets a key backer with the support of TD Ameritrade (AMTD) - a 7% owner of Knight. Combined with Jefferies' previously announced support and Getco's own shares, this brings to 45% the ratio of Knight's shares in favor of the deal. Blackstone - a 15.6% owner - also looks likely to back the sale.
