07:28 EDTHSBCHSBC 'hopeful' for modest improvement in world economy in 2H15
"We are hopeful for a modest improvement in the world economy in the second half of the year," said CEO Stuart Gulliver. "More accommodating monetary conditions should help the mainland Chinese economy to stabilise after first half challenges. US economic growth is also likely to accelerate. Thanks to lower oil prices, real incomes are rising across much of the eurozone and in the UK. Key uncertainties include the pace of recovery in capital spending, the timing of any US monetary tightening and ongoing challenges in the eurozone."

05:45 EDTHSBCHSBC to sell Brazil business to Banco Bradesco
HSBC (HSBC) entered into an agreement to sell its entire business in Brazil, comprising HSBC Bank Brasil S.A Banco Multiplo and HSBC Servicos e Participacoes Ltda, to Banco Bradesco (BBD) for an all cash consideration of $5.2B. This represents a price to tangible book value multiple of 1.8x based on 30 June 2015 accounts. As at the completion of the transaction, the purchase price is subject to adjustment to reflect the movement in the net asset value of the business between 31 December 2014 and completion. The transaction is expected to be a key contributor to the investor update action to reduce Group RWAs, accounting for $37B of the overall $290B planned reduction, enabling future redeployment of RWAs to support growth opportunities. The transaction is subject to regulatory approval. HSBC plans to maintain a presence in Brazil to serve large corporate clients with respect to their international needs. Reference Link

13:30 EDTHSBCHSBC technical notes before results
There is a potential double bottom pattern on the long-term chart that would likely become active on positive news. Price is currently poised at $45.13 and only a small advance in price would be needed for the pattern to become active. Upside potential for the pattern would be to the $50 to $52 area. If the news is bearish, a drop below $41.20 would void the double bottom. Next support levels to watch in that event would be at $40.23 and $38.88.
