(Bloomberg) -- Russian markets trimmed losses as investors speculated that the impact of long-awaited U.S. debt sanctions would be milder than feared.Benchmark ruble bonds pared declines, leaving the yield up the most since September. The White House barred U.S. financial institutions from buying new Russian bonds, a step that potentially leaves the secondary market unaffected. The ruble and stocks also clawed back losses.The growing threat of bond sanctions had been weighing on investor confidence in Russia for months and Thursday’s announcement came after a massive troop buildup on the border with Ukraine. JPMorgan Chase & Co. cited Russia’s spiraling tensions with the West as one of the reasons for cutting its recommendation on emerging-market currencies to underweight.“Some of the uncertainty has gone,” said Dmitry Polevoy, an analyst at Locko-Invest. “Ultimately, it all depends how it’s interpreted by the compliance departments of U.S. banks and, more importantly, investors in other jurisdictions.”A senior Russian official, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss matters that aren’t public, called the new debt restrictions the least painful option since they don’t affect the secondary market.Despite a sharp selloff when markets opened in Moscow, the ruble and local bonds are still stronger in the week. Markets rallied after U.S. President Joe Biden proposed a face-to-face meeting in a phone call with Russia’s Vladimir Putin on Tuesday.Russian officials have long said debt curbs won’t seriously hurt the government’s ability to fund itself as local banks and non-U.S. investors could step in to replace those forced to sell. State lender VTB Bank PJSC bought more than 70% of the local notes on offer in Wednesday’s debt sales, which saw a record placement equivalent to almost $3 billion.Foreigners now hold about a fifth of the so-called OFZ debt, worth roughly $37 billion.By targeting the primary market for government ruble debt, the U.S. has found “a way to test the waters,” said Elina Ribakova, deputy chief economist at the Institute of International Finance in Washington.“There is a lot of plumbing we do not understand, so even if there is a plan to move to the secondary market, one wants to do so gradually”Market Snapshot:Yields on Russia’s 10-year ruble bonds were up 13 basis points at 7.17% as of 4:31 p.m. in Moscow, set for the biggest increase since SeptemberThe ruble traded 0.9% weaker at 76.5350, paring a drop of as much as 2.1%Russia’s benchmark MOEX stock index retreated 0.7%For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

(Bloomberg) -- Citigroup Inc.’s equities desks, undersized among Wall Street’s giants, are proving strong enough to lift the firm to a record quarterly profit just as a new chief executive officer takes the helm.The bank reaped the most revenue from stock trading in the first quarter since 2009, while fees from underwriting shares quadrupled, helped by the firm’s dominance in taking blank-check companies known as SPACs to public markets. That offset a slump in revenue from Citigroup’s massive fixed-income trading division.The bank also said it will exit retail banking in 13 markets across Asia and Europe, the Middle East and Africa, as part of CEO Jane Fraser’s ongoing review of the firm’s strategy. Both announcements helped boost Citigroup’s stock as much as 3% in early New York trading, before shares pared gains to trade down a touch to $72.64 at 10:06 a.m.“It’s been a better-than-expected start to the year,” Fraser, who took over last month, said in a statement Thursday. She credited the “strong performance” of the company’s Wall Street operations and said the firm is optimistic about its outlook for the economy.Citigroup has raised more than any other bank for special-purpose acquisition companies this year, as managers of the vehicles set out to hunt unspecified takeover targets. That helped the firm reap $876 million in fees from equity underwriting. Quarterly stock-trading revenue, typically less than $1 billion at Citigroup, surged to $1.48 billion.But Citigroup is better known for its prowess in foreign exchange -- markets that remained sleepy during the period. The CBOE EuroCurrency Volatility Index, which measures swings in euro-dollar options, dropped for the fourth consecutive quarter as 2021 began, the longest streak since the start of 2008.Altogether, Citigroup’s revenue from trading fixed-income, currencies and commodities slipped 5% to $4.55 billion. While that topped analyst estimates, it paled in comparison to the 31% and 15% gains posted on Wednesday by rivals Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and JPMorgan Chase & Co., respectively.Total revenue in the quarter slipped to $19.33 billion, hurt by a 14% drop in revenue from the firm’s sprawling global consumer bank. Net income climbed to $7.94 billion, topping the $5.1 billion projected by analysts.Uncertain is whether the SPAC boom may continue. Regulators in the U.S. are voicing concerns that already have put the brakes on new deals this quarter. Citigroup Chief Financial Officer Mark Mason said on an earnings call that he’d expect to see a decline in SPACs as rates push investors to “surer returns”.Even still, Fraser can invest some of Citi’s haul into upgrading the firm’s controls and technology after regulators dinged the company for deficiencies last year. Those efforts contributed to a 4% increase in expenses to $11.07 billion in the first quarter, albeit below the $11.17 billion estimated by analysts.Meanwhile, the firm is pointing to signs of an improving economy. The lender released $3.85 billion that it previously stockpiled to cover bad loans as the pandemic sent unemployment soaring and shuttered businesses across the country last year.Another bright spot at the start of 2021 was the end to a slide in spending on Citigroup cards, which climbed 1% in the first three months. Still, the world’s largest credit-card issuer saw balances on those cards fall 14% as consumers socked away savings and avoided racking up new debt. Banks including JPMorgan have suggested that’s evidence that Americans have their finances in order and are ready to spend once vaccinations unleash commerce.“This is the healthiest we have seen the consumer emerge from a crisis in recent history,” Fraser said.Retail Banking ExitCitigroup will exit its consumer franchises in Australia, Bahrain, China, India, Indonesia, South Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, Poland, Russia, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. The firm will continue to offer products in those markets to customers of its institutional clients group, which houses the private bank, cash-management arm and investment-banking and trading businesses.The bank will operate its consumer-banking franchise in both regions from four wealth centers in Singapore, Hong Kong, United Arab Emirates and London, it said.“While the other 13 markets have excellent businesses, we don’t have the scale we need to compete,” Fraser said. “We believe our capital, investment dollars and other resources are better deployed against higher returning opportunities in wealth management and our institutional businesses in Asia.”(Updates shares in third paragraph, adds chief financial officer comments in ninth.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

The U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee has formally approved a report accusing Big Tech companies of buying or crushing smaller firms, Representative David Cicilline's office said in a statement Thursday. With the approval during a marathon, partisan hearing, the more than 400 page staff report will become an official committee report, and the blueprint for legislation to rein in the market power of the likes of Alphabet Inc's Google, Apple Inc, Amazon.com and Facebook. The report first released in October - the first such congressional review of the tech industry - suggested extensive changes to antitrust law and described dozens of instances where it said the companies had misused their power.
