NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Barclays Plc (BCS) are up 1.72% to 14.80%  in pre-market trade as the bank sees investors and brokers cut ties with its stock-trading venue run from one of Wall Street's biggest so-called dark pools as the firm battles allegations of fraud and misleading its customers, the Wall Street Journal reports.
