T = Trends for a Stock’s Movement
Citigroup is a global diversified financial services holding company providing consumers, corporations, governments, and institutions with a broad range of financial products and services. It operates in two segments: Citicorp and Citi Holdings. The company’s products and services include: consumer banking and credit, corporate and investment banking, securities brokerage, wealth management, and transaction services to consumers, corporations, governments, and institutions worldwide.
Citigroup shares are down in premarket trading as people familiar with the matter who spoke to the Financial Times said the company will report a sharp drop in trading revenue due to a slump in trading across the market. The FT pointed out that Citi’s focus on interest rates and foreign exchange, which have been weak as of late, are reasons the company will likely report disappointing earnings. Citi, the country’s third-largest bank by assets, is the most exposed of all U.S. banks to emerging markets, which investors have been shying away from and have seen falling currency rates. Citi declined to give the FT a comment.
