JPMorgan Chase & Co. announced that it has reached a definitive agreement to sell its physical commodities business to Mercuria Energy Group Limited, a global energy and commodities trading company, for $3.5B. The all cash transaction is expected to close in 3Q14, subject to regulatory approvals. J.P. Morgan will work closely with Mercuria to ensure a smooth transition of commodities assets, transactions, physical trading operations and employees to Mercuria at the close of the transaction. Following the sale, J.P. Morgan will continue to provide traditional banking activities in the commodities markets, including financial products and the vaulting and trading of precious metals – businesses that the firm has been a leader in for years. The firm will also continue to make markets, provide liquidity and risk management, and offer advice to global companies and institutions around the world. The transaction is not expected to have a material impact on JPMorgan Chase's earnings.

15:17 EDTJPMCFPB may require added disclosures on prepaid cards, WSJ says
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is expected to propose new rules later this week that will require more disclosure for prepaid debit cards and cracking down on allowing consumers to spend more money on the cards than they have, according to The Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the matter. The rules come as traditional financial institutions, such as JPMorgan (JPM) and American Express (AXP) have moved into the business and the industry’s biggest players don’t allow overdrafts so it is unclear whether the new rules will dent industry profits, the report said. Green Dot (GDOT) also does not permit overdrafts and Visa (V) recently excluded overdraft abilities in guidelines for its prepaid cards, the report added. Reference Link

Global banks should have buffers of bonds or equity worth 16%-20% of their risk-weighted assets, beginning in January 2019, The Financial Stability Board decided, according to Reuters.

Publicly traded global banks include Bank of America (BAC), Citigroup (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan (JPM), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB) Wells Fargo (WFC), Banco Santander (SAN), Barclays (BCS), Credit Suisse (CS), Deutsche Bank (DB), HSBC (HSBC), ING Groep (ING), Lloyds Banking (LYG), RBS (RBS) and UBS (UBS).
