"Most brokers down here have already gotten a room in the city and mostly right downtown near the financial district," said Ken Polcari, director of the NYSE floor division at O’Neil Securities in New York. Intercontinental Exchange Inc's New York Stock Exchange unit, Nasdaq OMX Group , and BATS Global Markets said their exchanges are expected to stay open for normal operating hours Monday and Tuesday. Regulators asked the exchanges to revisit their business continuity plans in the wake of that storm to prevent further closures.

Eurogroup President Jeroen Dijsselbloem arrives to take part in an Eurogroup finance ministers meeting at the European Council in Brussels on January 26, 2015The EU issued Monday a stern warning to Greece that its place in the eurozone is at risk if new Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras fails to meet the country's austerity and debt commitments. From Brussels to Berlin officials said they were ready to talk to the new government led by Tsipras' radical left party Syriza, but insisted that Athens must stick to prior agreements with its international creditors. Eurozone finance ministers were meeting in Brussels a day after Syriza stormed to victory in elections on the back of Tsipras' promises to end "disastrous austerity" and seek a cancellation of Greek debt. The Dutch finance minister did not rule out steps to help Greece -- such as extending debt repayment deadlines or reducing interest rates -- so long as the new government stuck to the austerity measures it has agreed with the EU and IMF since 2010.
