Food for thought. That fine could have paid around an additional 8p dividend. If it wasn't for these fines this would actually be a great stock to hold. Well at least the potential is there if you are patient.

Blackberry-Ta for the post/link-interesting read-looks like a steady progress toward 300p will be in the making. And the 0.5bn extra allowance can at least go towards other fines-not a bad amount of credit to have for a rainy day

i wonder when the new chairman will make his first big impact. With the biggest of the fines out of the way could he be in a position to offload the IB altogether?

Astol: Thanks for yesterday's constructive comment on my post. Admittedly, later with hind-sight I may regret closing out at break even when a little more patience might have yielded a profit . However I have waited since 2013 for barc to reach my break even on buy price when adding transaction costs while other shares in my portfolio incl uu. , sse , ng,bt,vod have given good divi income and capital gains . there were other considerations as well . For the last two months I have reduced my equity exposure and built up cash reserves to take advantage of any market downturn when it comes. The next two weeks may bring new market upsets as Greece runs out of cash and can not meet the IMF loan due on June 5th. Last time round they paid the IMF with money held by the IMF. I think that was the last rabbit they could pull out of the hat. Good luck with your trading but be very careful .

True - I think most of us would like to see a time limit on the PPI claims. As much as anything I'm fed up of the junk phone calls that I get for something that I never took out. Perhaps the next big thing will be banks countersuing for time wasting ambulance chasers putting forward thousands of bogus claims.

It's pretty clear that the Banks are just Government Cash machines. They've taken tens of billions from them for everything going - most industries would have gone bust on those fines. It is only acceptable because the muggin's Public approve not realising that they are actually paying these funds via their Pension Funds. Never overestimate just how stupid the Public really are!

Barclays and RBS were among six banks fined a combined $5.8-billion on Wednesday for rigging currencies, ending two years of global investigations into what U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch called a “brazen display of collusion” to game markets. Barclays paid a total of 1.5 billion pounds to five authorities and RBS $669-million. JPMorgan also predicts both banks will top up reserves to compensate customers for payment protection insurance they didn’t want or need, adding to the 23 billion pounds the scandal has already cost British lenders. Barclays will make another 600 million pounds of provisions and RBS 400 million pounds, Sinha said. He has an overweight rating on Barclays’s stock and is neutral on RBS.

Barclays, RBS seen facing $11-billion more in misconduct costs Barclays PLC and Royal Bank of Scotland Group PLC, which were fined $3-billion (U.S.) on Wednesday for rigging currency markets, will have to set aside another 7 billion pounds ($11-billion) for misconduct within two years, JPMorgan Chase & Co. said.

Good news from Greece may be our next 'decent' push I guess.

the current yield I believe is 2.5% much better than my Cash ISA at 0.5%.

harvester- there is no bad time to take a profit or in your case break even-but it might have been worth holding for the extra upside which I see should reach 300p within next 2/3 months imo. yesterdays rally was as a result of the fine being less 0.5bn than Barc provisioned for.I also recall at the final results that Jenkins strategy and culture change is paying dividends and the fines and litigation are matters he inherited. Well just my thoughts.

Guilty plea-now only question is not if, but how much the class action lawyers, mega corps and pension funds will demand over the next few years.

Bob D installed a culture of greed and reckless risk taking at the bank . His legacy will tarnish the reputation of this bank for a long time . While many other banks were involved in the forex trade rigging , it appears that Barclays was the leader of the villains . I took advantage of todays rise by closing my Barclays position completely at breakeven , even though I recognise that momentum may drive the price to 300 or above . Surely big companies have suffered substantial losses from this market rigging and will look for some redress . Barclays will find it hard to refuse their compensation claim since they will not wish to be in the limelight with prolonged litigation news .

RE: Forex Barclays rose more than 3pc, adding £1.48bn to the bank’s value – almost as much as it was forced to pay. The bank had set aside more than £2bn in relation to the probes, while it was not judged to have breached a deferred prosecution agreement with the DoJ.
