Stress test

Just back on this point.

The stress test data had been carried out on the back of a static balance sheet assumption as of December 2015, doesn't include recent sell offs since then.

Still got the Egypt unit sale that is valued at £300m and still got over 50% of Barclays Africa to sell. Should help CET1 to be strengthened.

when BARC SP moves up, it moves quick - see share graphs - 20% gain in one or two weeks is not unusual from a start point of about 150p - barring anymore badly worded BOD announcements I think we will see a steady rise over the next 3 months - although it will go up and down daily on profit taking and broker deals IMO. I am holding about £20K so far and adding £2K a month while SP is low.

Regards and GL with your own plans

RE: RE NEW TIME TRADES

Hi Starmam, Thanks. I've held & traded BARC for a few months now. Eyeing up LLOY's for a first entry.

General view here is that though they're solely reliant on UK economy & housing market, anything around 50p (or a bit more) may be L/T value. Though Brexit will impact property markets, UK's chronic housing shortage won't be addressed for years & that factor alone may put a floor to any major house-price correction.

Still undecided on buying LLOY's, but it remains a strong consideration. - Regards & GL. Catch all later.

Good illustration for anyone who's curious.

Europe’s bank sector survives stress tests - http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/1f833416-55c6-11e6-befd-2fc0c26b3c60.html

RE NEW TIME TRADES
Fri 23:49
Hi Jackdawsson,
Thanks for your comment/investment thoughts. The after hours trades on the Stock Exchange web appears to be another negotiated on 855,000 shares. Only hold two banking companies in Barclays and Lloyds. Good to see SP moving the right way. Sad to see more closures and redundancies but this will be continuous in the banking sector to squeeze profits for some and save others. Cost will probably be costly for Lloyds but beneficial in the longer term. Good luck if you do decide to invest. Sleep tight folks.

Stress test
Fri 21:37
Barclays (U.K.) 7.30 percent transitional CET1 ratio, wouldn't see this horrendous, but still a case for Barclays to increase their tier 1 capital over the next 18-24 months.

** BARC is the 7th (not 5th) most exposed bank in Europe apparently.

The European bank stress tests have just been released in the last few minutes. BARC is the fifth most exposed bank in Europe apparently.

RE: NEW TIME TRADES

Starmam, Kindly note, the registered 158+ SP is due to deleted trades. Clicking on "BARC share trades" at the top of this page, then click O at the end of the trade, confirms this.

At a tangent. LLOY's may also be a decent bet at 52+. They've a VG CEO in Osorio, but one who tends to err on the side of caution. Hence an uncertain outlook knocking SP. But I quite fancy LLOYs to show a good profit in future for the more patient investors/traders who buy near current levels. Might buy some myself next week. - Regards.
