The Securities and Exchange Commission has charged Bank of America Corp.’s Merrill Lynch with securities fraud for misusing customer information and charging undisclosed trading fees. Merrill paid $10 million to settle the charges, which focus on communications between the firm’s proprietary and market-making stock trading desks from 2003 to 2007. Bank of America bought Merrill in January 2009.
