Some Wall Street traders booked hotels, while banks and brokerages prepared to get by with bare bones staffing, but major exchanges said it was business as usual as a potentially historic blizzard bore down on the northeast. I don't suspect it will be an issue at all," 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 the exchanges they operate are currently expected to stay open for normal operating hours Monday and Tuesday. The last time the stock markets closed due to weather was in October 2012 when Superstorm Sandy bore down on the East Coast, bringing flooding, punishing winds and widespread power outages that led to a two-day closure of U.S. stock markets.

By Sylvia Westall and Ayla Jean Yackley BEIRUT/ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Kurdish forces took full control of the Syrian town of Kobani on Monday, driving out remaining Islamic State fighters to end a four-month battle that became a focal point of the international fight against the ultra-hardline Islamist group. Monitoring group Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Syrian Kurdish YPG forces had retaken the town, close to the Turkish border, but were still proceeding carefully in the eastern outskirts where Islamic State had planted mines before fleeing. "I can see the YPG flag flying over Kobani. There are the sounds of jets flying above," said Tevfik Kanat, a Turkish Kurd who rushed to the border with hundreds of others, including refugees from Kobani, after hearing about the advance.

Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie speaks at the Freedom Summit in Des Moines(Reuters) - New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and his supporters have formed a political action committee ahead of a likely bid for president, adding a third well-known Republican figure to the fight for campaign funds among the party's core donor class, according to a source with knowledge of the matter. The new political action committee, or PAC, called Leadership Matters for America, is the clearest sign yet that Christie is running. The Wall Street Journal first reported the establishment of the PAC on Monday. Among those serving on the PAC are long-time Christie allies Michael DuHaime and Bill Palatucci, as well as Phil Cox, executive director of the Republican Governors Association, the source said.
