Knight Capital Group Inc. (NYSE:KCG) is reportedly considering a takeover by Getco, or possibly another bidder, as we reported earlier.

–Virtu is still in the wings; the common link between Joyce and Virtu run by former Nymex chief Vinnie Viola–Dick Grasso he’s friends with both and could broker a deal

–FOX Business also hears Joyce wants $4 a share thats his alleged selling price
