14:01 EDTUBS, BCSBarclays to double provision for forex rigging fines, Sky News says
Barclays (BCS), which previously excluded itself from a broader settlement between several banking peers and regulators over alleged manipulation of foreign exchange rates as it worked to secure a binding agreement with all relevant authorities, will more than double its existing provision for forex fines next week, which may indicate that a settlement deal could be announced soon, said Sky News. Barclay took a GBP500M charge during the course of last year in advance of expected forex issue costs, the report noted. Other banks that previously agreed to a settlement included Bank of America (BAC), Citibank (C), HSBC (HSBC), JPMorgan Chase (JPM), RBS (RBS) and UBS (UBS). The report indicates that U.S. regulators have stepped up talks with banks including Barclays and the others involved. Reference Link

13:07 EDTUBS, BCSEU official: Euro banks shouldn't also go through Fed's stress test, WSJ says
Jonathan Hill, the European Unionís new financial markets chief, told The Wall Street Journal that he does not see a need for the U.S. to give stress tests to European banks that have already received health checks in Europe. Hill says banks across Europe are "properly and sensibly capitalized." The WSJ reported last week that the U.S. units of two European banks, Deutsche Bank (DB) and Banco Santander (SAN), are set to fail the Federal Reserve's stress tests, though they passed ECB stress tests last year.
