I hardly think it is that simple...I would think more money is made by banks on the interest on loans than savings interest paid... Balancing out is hardly it would seem a way of making a profit...

Several pundits have said low bank rates are no good to Banks profitability, so dropping lower is obviously worse.. Meanwhile banks stocks have fallen over the past 16 months from 25% to 50% in some cases while the Bank rate has remained at .5%..others issues are involved ..the US indicated that an interest rise maybe in July and bank stocks did rise somewhat.. than now is not the case and banks shares have dropped again..... on top of the Referendum result ...

Purely my logical way of thinking, others may well agree ... or disagree...Meanwhile Banks tread water it seems...or are trying to swim up stream.... at the moment..

Carney has indicated that rates maybe cut .. That is more bad news for Banks affecting profitability..

Good News for UK banks is slim at the present time ... and with no direction of any stability yet... It is a wait and see 3 months to come ... It is obvious that Reports and statements from the UK and EU country leaders will be coming at anytime affecting the FTSE and Bank shares and currency rates ...

Likewise news of possible renegotiations will emerge and until the New UK PM is in place and a more defined direction is forth coming, then no mans land appears where we are at. in the current context..

Financial EU deals and talks will be on going from now so unexpected statements will affect the current situation time and time again... So assume nothing and you will not be disappointed .... as the saying goes.....

See what next week will bring ... and future weeks up till October...

For me personally and millions of others ... things are not in my control... Who is chosen to steer the ship and where we go is mystery tour at the moment...

My gut feeling is that world changes that have been going, will continue and more so in Europe in the next 5 years on many issues including Financial and Immigration... and trade deals... and of course Terrorism.

Just my point of view as always...ATB ..All

Come on WALES.....

Watching extra time Portugal v Croatia. I can see Croatia winning this. Very well organised. Half- time now Hope it doesn't go to penalties.

Another problem with an iPad is it's too easy to catch something and away goes your post brver to be recovered .On top of that the predictive text. You can just see one ofthese IT anaraks freaming it up. It's nothing but trouble and it can't be turned off. I might google that, maybe it can be turned off. The other problem is trying to scroll,the whole darned screen moves and not the text. Also, yes, there's more lol. I just can't seem to stop pressing the u when I want the i. or more often hit o instead of i. So p, often .... I just got 'ifton' then instead of 'often'..lol.... I get. 'if' instead of, 'of' and and vice versa . Ugh...

At least the banks are much better capitalised. I posted on Lloyds not long ago re. The EU-wide dissatisfaction with the EU. As Insaid though, if one if those countrues takes a vite and elects timleave it's big trouble because of the euro. The MPs would ignore thst vote,I think ss it's only advisory. Getting rid of Junker would help no end.

It's gone to penalties

That's quite a turnaround in the sp. 17p ?. Holy- Moley..lol they say this time isn't as bad as 2008 but it's very frustrating to see the FTSE at a higher level than pre - referendum. Anyway, it's the FTSE 250 index that concerns us and that hasn't done so well. fAtSE futures up 200 plus as it was yesterday didn't do our shares any good. It's like watching the bus you wanted to catch driving off into the sunset without you..lol

I am glad you posted errors on the iPad.. I have the same trouble.. Frustration and a pain in the backside at times... And predictive text that sometimes predicts a load of rubbish or gobbledygook ...

That's technology for you ... See what tomorrow brings..

Just thinking the SP now is equal to near 17p old money .. I believe it dropped to 10p old money after the 2008 crash.. Nearly gone full circle now ... Funny old game sharedealing isn't it ... This week has certainly been interesting in so many ways... Financially, politically and the football....still life is a lot, lot worse for many in the world...

This euro malarkey will no doubt go on for a few weeks yet ... If RBS drops to 120p I may buy some more... I has dropped 240p in the last 16 months, so another 50p drop is not out of the question in the current situation ...

Apologies for messed up words..I'm on the iPad, it's not good for long posts,so fiddly.

Pretty depressing reading in those two links (mailman). However, I just don't think the passport threat is a starter. In the article it stated that not only the UK would be affected butthevUS, Asi,Australia and further on in the article, also thevEU banks so, it isn't going to happen. Interetbrates will drop,bad news.

Bob..I'm not sure about being in 'interesting times'..lol b****y depressing and dishearening more like..lol.but seriously,some on Lloyds have posted their losses, one down over £50,000 plus. Another well, so much I'd have to getba calculator to see how much as he gave the number of shsresvand the price of them, he said the only benefactor of his investments now will be his daughter and grandchild.

Even in dire times such as these if you can buy in at the lows we have now, have the courage,as you say,mailman...'He who dares.' etc...there's money to be made but as with your 188p purchse, mailman you may have to wait a couple of weeks until some decent news but 188p was a decent punt.

I have been holder of this unpredictable share for years

One thing I have learnt is that often when you think it has reached a low point is is capable of dropping further

I don t trade them at present but when I did i discovered ( the hard way) trying to catch them at the bottom is like catching a falling sword

I have had a modest amount of success by watching what appears to be a low then waiting until has risen at least 5 percent from it and in theory buy in on a rise with upward momentum

But these are interesting times - who knows ?
