Federal Reserve on Thursday fined Deutsche Bank AG DBKGn. The German bank failed to detect and halt its traders from using chat rooms to communicate with competitors, the Fed said in a statement.
Central bank officials are "requiring the firm to cooperate in any investigation of the individuals involved in the conduct underlying the FX enforcement," according to the statement. In a statement, the bank said, "we are pleased to resolve these civil enforcement matters with the Federal Reserve.
The Fed also said it found gaps in Deutsche Bank compliance with the Volcker Rule, which prohibits government-protected banks from engaging in proprietary trading.

The bank agreed to improve its oversight of foreign exchange trades as part of the agreement with the Fed. The New York regulator has been investigating whether the bank used algorithms on trading platforms to front-run or otherwise take advantage of clients.
Renee Calabro, a spokeswoman for Deutsche, declined to comment on the status of the New York probe. Deutsche was not sanctioned in earlier global probes of foreign exchange manipulation.
