UK bank earnings: Will Christmas come early?

After favourable releases from their US counterparts – and with a possible rate rise on the horizon – hopes are high for British bank earnings. Take your position on HSBC, Natwest and Lloyds Banking Group here.

Could bank earnings fuel a bounce in the markets?

Earnings season is back and, after the recent sell-off in the markets, all eyes are on the big banks going into Q3. Although the financial sector has overall surpassed expectations after the drumming it got when the pandemic first swept the globe, uncertainty remains as inflation gathers pace.

Speculation of a rate rise from the Bank of England is rife – and while the Fed and others are holding fire for now, this could change significantly in 2022 should inflation continue to push higher. Positive reports, meanwhile, could go a long way to allaying the gathering fears of a global economic slowdown.

Take a position on the major bank stocks now.
