On Monday Citi Group, Wells Fargo & Co and Goldman Sachs initiated, what we have come to term as “One of the most volatile trading weeks in recent times”. Today Bank of America, First Republic Bank, JP Morgan & Co, and several other financial institutions, will be adding their lot to the day’s earnings announcement. Markets are expected to remain volatile with corrections from yesterday’s fall out.
