Morgan Stanley traders lost money on seven days in Q3

Morgan Stanley HQ

Morgan Stanley lost money from trading on seven days in the third quarter, down from eight a year earlier.

Bloomberg reports that traders generated more than $100m on one day, a decrease from nine in the third quarter of 2012, the company said yesterday in a regulatory filing.

None of the daily losses exceeded the bank’s so-called value-at-risk, an estimate of potential trading losses.

Morgan Stanley posted the highest equity-trading revenue among the five biggest Wall Street banks, while also generating the least fixed-income trading revenue. The firm already has reached its 2014 goal of cutting capital used by the fixed-income unit as part of Chief Executive Officer James Gorman’s plan to double return on equity.
