|Taken out another short at the close on Barc.Well done long holders, but I cant see this DOW rally holding, its getting a bit like the dot.com bubble.So as I have said already a big sell off is going to happen very soon IMO.|
|the decks of barcs will all be clean by AGM and we may have the rise in div sooner|
|Took some profit, bought some Royal Mail Group|
|Top Bank of England official may have to sit out Barclays discussions
Look at the other fines in the article o.O
|bernie - type hTTp and we can link directly.|
Barc may have not made huge provisions because they are happy that they will WIN the case!?|
Well it's the future 'potential' losses here that's put a stop to the share price. Don't forget they are being sued because the fine is inappropriately high that's a huge concern because they have not given the market guidance on that. RBS have already made huge provisions (hence the bigger loss reported), BARC have not.
RBS is basically undervalued on a market cap basis and if they make a profit in 2018 it's time to tuck away RBS now as by the time they make a profit well it will already be priced in.|
|Look at RBS - mega losses but at least investors know where they stand - up 2% today! Makes me think if we paid the 5billion would we be soaring by now?|
|I hope it does porto and Lloy makes the same % increase.|
|Hi op you ok , not to bothered barcs is infine fettle will push on to over 300p by xmas|
|SP a bit stuck in the mud here porto...
'beening' is that in the Oxford now ;-)|

|Barclays Merchant Bank (Singapore) buys stake in Manappuram Finance
|Hopefully he might have learnt from his time at Bradford & Bingley & not repeat whatever mistakes they made|
|the merry go roundis a closed shop
why did the fca /doj not prosecuted BOB DIAMOND FOR FRAUD
the buck stops with me I made barcs profits that is why I have been given 22m in bonuses . the bankers will do what I say or leave the bank|
|That will be mondaytuesday!...|
|I cannot believe the recent appointment of a man so closely associated with the failure of Bradford & Bingley to the Barclays Board. The appointment suggests to me that the Bank is moving in the wrong direction........yet again. A Clearing Bank marches on its deposits. Why appoints a man who has a track record of putting them at risk. We are clearly in the month of the Mad hare!!!|
|Think I am going to have nightmares!!...|

Major UK card issuer Barclaycard announced more partnerships to integrate payment functionality into wearable devices, according to Finextra.
Now, the issuer has partnered with two firms, DCK Group, which partners with retailers for luxury jewelry, and Tappy Technologies, which works with watchmakers, in order to extend contactless payment functionality via chip to their offerings. The move will complement Barclaycard's proprietary line of wearables as well as existing partnerships.
Moving into wearables could be promising for Barclaycard.
Contactless interest may have led to success in its proprietary line that could carry over to partners. In November, contactless card usage accounted for £2.9 billion ($3.6 billion) in sales, up 184% year-over-year (YoY), according to the UK Cards Association. That trend could indicate rising usage in noncard contactless payments as well, like mobile wallets or wearables. Since its launch last July, Barclaycard's proprietary wearables have seen 1.1 million transactions worth £6.6 million ($8.2 million), a figure that's a promising start and likely to rise.
But Barclaycard will have to work to gain customers. However, while consumers are interested in, and apt to make, wearable payments, it's unclear if they will be willing to buy new products for this express purpose - a Barclaycard study of UK customers found that the group is most interested in retrofitting existing jewelry and wearables for contactless payments. That means Barclaycard's partnerships could be more effective if they work in turning existing items into payment devices rather than solely marketing new ly enabled offerings.
The rapid expansion of the Internet of Things (IoT) offers payments companies an opportunity to expand beyond mobile phones, cards, and point-of-sale devices, to a broad and diverse ecosystem of internet-connected devices.
We forecast that there will be 24 billion connected devices installed globally by 2020, up from nearly 7 billion today. And over 5 billion will be consumer connected devices by 2020, representing a massive expansion of touchpoints that could eventually offer payments functionality.
BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service, has compiled a detailed report that dives into the budding industry of connected device payments, providing a rundown of the stakeholders driving innovation in wearables, connected cars, and connected home devices. It also gauges the impact of new payment devices on different payments companies, along with how these devices could shift consumer purchasing behavior.
Here are some of the key takeaways from the report:
The Internet of Things is ushering in a new era for payments companies and manufacturers. The rapid expansion of the Internet of Things (IoT) offers an opportunity to facilitate payments beyond mobile phones, cards, and point-of-sale terminals, on a broad and diverse ecosystem of internet-connected devices.
More transactions could eventually pass through connected devices than smartphones. We estimate there will be 24 billion of these devices by 2020, with 5 billion of them being consumer-facing. This represents a massive expansion of touchpoints where payments could be enabled.
Card networks have developed a basic framework to enable commerce in everyday devices. Visa and MasterCard are creating the underlying infrastructure to support the standardization of payments integration and stake themselves out as the key connected payments gatekeepers. Their payment platforms are universal, allowing digital payments to grow without being tied to the success of a particular manufacturer.
Consumer-facing IoT companies have much to gain from enabling payments in their devices, including improving the value of the device, being able to cross-sell products through the device, and laying the groundwork for future opportunities to earn incremental revenue. For payments companies, connected payments offer a new revenue stream and an opportunity to gain market share ahead of competitors.
Wearables, connected cars, and smart home devices will be the top connected payments product categories.
