    Ahead of its Q4 results today, JPMorgan's (JPM) board has reportedly voted to release an internal report about the bank's $6.2B London Whaling loss. The study criticizes JPM's lax supervision and risk controls, as well as CEO Jamie Dimon, former CFO Douglas Braunstein and other execs. Some at JPM are wary of publishing the report, as it could provide ammunition to plaintiff lawyers, although Dimon argued for its release. (Previously)

    JPMorgan (JPM) tells clients it will no longer ask for their votes in the annual Euromoney foreign exchange poll - the Oscars for the fx crowd, if you will. The move comes after the bank fell out of the top 5 last year. "The annual poll has become too time-consuming (for clients) with no tangible benefit to them," says the bank's global rates chief.

    JPMorgan's (JPM) share of the $8.5B settlement over foreclosure abuse between 10 banks and regulators is $2B, with the company saying it will take a $700M pretax charge in its Q4 results. The charge shows how banks pushed to close the deal so they could include the costs in their upcoming reports using "subsequent-events" accounting rules, allowing them to start 2013 with a cleaner slate.

    Former JPMorgan Investment Banking chief Jes Staley parachutes into BlueMountain Capital, whose co-founder is a former JPM executive. BlueMountain gained more than 10% in 2012, partly on the profits it made taking the other side of JPMorgan's "London Whale" trades. Staley lost his job at the bank because of those trades. Can't make this stuff up.
