Bank of America expects trading revenue decline

Bank of America said it expects trading revenue to decline this quarter from the previous three months and a year earlier.

Bloomberg News reports that the drop is consistent with customer activity, Chief Executive Officer Brian T. Moynihan said at a conference hosted by Goldman Sachs in New York.

The bank said in a presentation that trading is among its “revenue headwinds” after generating $3.27bn in the third quarter and $2.97bn in the fourth quarter of last year.

“When activity ebbs and flows, we don’t try to replace that activity with non-customer-driven business,” Moynihan said. “We stick to our knitting.”
