OCC Reports $4.5 Billion in Q3 Bank Trading Revenue

Commercial banks reported total trading revenue of $4.5 billion in 2013’s third quarter, 38% less than the previous quarter and 15% less than trading revenue in the same quarter a year ago, according to the OCC’s Quarterly Report on Bank Trading and Derivatives Activities.

The decline was attributed in part to seasonal factors, as well as to the partial government shutdown and debt ceiling debate in October.

The net current credit exposure fell $33 billion, or 10%, to $305 billion in the third quarter, the report said. It also shows that the notional amount of derivatives commercial banks held rose $6.2 trillion, or 3%, in the third quarter to $240 trillion.
