"The BoE said that credit conditions were largely back to normal after the financial crisis and therefore banks should hold an extra so-called counter-cyclical capital buffer (CCB) of 1 percent of risk-weighted assets during such times - equivalent to 10 billion pounds across the system." http://bit.ly/1Im2aTS
LLoyds risk weighted assets at end of September £225billion so they have to save another £2.5billion I presume.
What makes you think the FED hike will be good for the SP even though as you say: "it has no direct impact"? I think when the FED raise IR's on the 28th Dec - the FTSE will dive and drag LLOY with it. Mark my words. I say that because I have now tempted the curse of Z and the stock will fly!
