(Reuters) - A former Cantor Fitzgerald & Co trader has been indicted on charges that he defrauded investors by lying about the price of mortgage bond transactions he handled for them after the financial crisis in order to illegally profit.

David Damos, 35, was charged in an indictment filed in federal court in New Haven, Connecticut, with securities fraud, becoming the latest trader to face charges for cheating customers on prices of mortgage-backed securities.
