    Citigroup Inc. (C) or Citi is an American multinational investment banking and financial services corporation headquartered in Manhattan, New York City. Citigroup was formed from one of the world's largest mergers in history by combining the banking giant Citicorp and financial conglomerate Travelers Group in October 1998 (announced on April 7, 1998).] As of January 2015, it is the third largest bank holding company in the US by assets. Its largest shareholders include funds from the Middle East and Singapore. At its height until the global financial crisis of 2008, Citigroup was the largest company and bank in the world as measured by total assets, with 357,000 employees. In 2007, Citigroup was one of the primary dealers in US Treasury securities. Citigroup had the world's largest financial services network, spanning 140 countries with approximately 16,000 offices worldwide. It holds over 200 million customer accounts in more than 140 countries.

    Citigroup suffered huge losses during the global financial crisis of 2008 and was rescued in November 2008 in a massive stimulus package by the U.S. government. On February 27, 2009, Citigroup announced that the U.S. government would take a 36% equity stake in the company by converting US$25 billion in emergency aid into common stock with a US Treasury credit line of $45 billion to prevent the bankruptcy of the largest bank in the world at the time. The government guaranteed losses on more than $300 billion troubled assets and injected $20 billion immediately into the company. In exchange, the salary of the CEO was set at $1 per year and the highest salary of employees was restricted to $500,000 in cash. Any compensation amount above $500,000 had to be paid with restricted stock that could not be sold by the employee until the emergency government aid was repaid in full. The U.S. government also gained control of half the seats in the Board of Directors, and the senior management was subjected to removal by the US government if there were poor performance. By December 2009, the U.S. government stake was reduced from a 36% stake to a 27% stake, after Citigroup sold $21 billion of common shares and equity in the largest single share sale in U.S. history, surpassing Bank of America's $19 billion share sale one month prior. By December 2010, Citigroup repaid the emergency aid in full and the U.S. government received an additional $12 billion profit in selling its shares. US Government restrictions on pay and oversight of the senior management were removed after the US government sold its remaining 27% stake as of December 2010.

    As of 2009, Citigroup was one of the Big Four banks in the United States, with Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase and Wells Fargo.

    As of June 2012, the year of Citi's 200th anniversary, Citigroup had built up an enormous cash reserve in the wake of the financial crisis with $420 billion in surplus liquid cash and government securities. As of Q1 2012, Citi had a tier 1 capital ratio of 12.4%, making Citi one of the best-capitalized financial institutions in the world after billions of dollars in losses from the financial crisis. This was a result of selling more than $500 billion of its special assets placed in Citi Holdings, which were guaranteed from losses by the US Treasury while under federal majority ownership. A special IRS tax exception given to Citi allowed the US Treasury to sell its shares at a profit, while it still owned Citigroup shares, which eventually netted $12 billion. According to Treasury spokeswoman Nayyera Haq, "This (IRS tax) rule was designed to stop corporate raiders from using loss corporations to evade taxes, and was never intended to address the unprecedented situation where the government owned shares in banks. And it was certainly not written to prevent the government from selling its shares for a profit."In 2012, Citigroup ranked 20th in size under the Fortune 500 list. In comparison, JPMorgan Chase, which ranked 16th, was the largest bank in US.

    Citigroup reports earnings of $1.10 a share vs. $1.03 expected
    Shares of Citi rose more than 2 percent in premarket trading following the announcement.

    The company posted first-quarter earnings per share of $1.10, as the bank set aside money to cover losses on energy loans and its costs related to shrinking some businesses rose.

    The profit decline is the biggest among big U.S. banks that have reported first-quarter results so far, but Citigroup's earnings and revenue beat Wall Street's low expectations, helped by a fall in operating expenses.

    Revenue for the quarter came in at $17.55 billion, against the comparable year-ago figure of $19.81 billion.
    Analysts had expected Citi to report earnings of about $1.03 a share on $17.46 billion in revenue, according to a consensus estimate from Thomson Reuters.

    C up +2% in the pre-market on ER
    • Citigroup — Citigroup announced third-quarter earnings and revenue Friday morning that topped Wall Street expectations. The bank said it saw adjusted earnings per share of $1.24 on $17.76 billion in revenue for the quarter. Wall Street analysts had expected Citi to report earnings of about $1.16 a share on revenue of $17.36 billion, according to a consensus estimate from Thomson Reuters. Those results represent a decline on both the top and bottom lines compared to adjusted earnings of $1.31 per share on about $18.5 billion in adjusted revenue for the third quarter of 2015.

    I would like to trade on the Saudi stuff and Citigroup. But I just don't have enough information yet. It should knock the S&P futures. The Saudi arrests must have been unexpected in regards to our markets. None of the stocks mentioned had unusual put activity Friday.

    Citigroup (NYSE:C) is the 3rd largest bank in the United States. Since the crash of 2008, its stock wasn't able to recover 15% of that decline compared to other Banks like JP Morgan or Goldman Sachs. 2018 wasn't a good year for the entire market and Citigroup wasn't any different as its stock price is currently down 26% year-to-date.

    Many investors are currently afraid of catching the falling knife as they are focusing on the short term perspective. However, if we focus on the right cycle and sequence with the help of the Elliott Wave Theory we can understand that with every drop comes opportunities in specific areas that can be used for investing or trading.

    [​IMG]

    The market nature & the Elliott Wave Theory states that an impulsive 5 waves advance is followed by a corrective 3 waves lower which is represented in the above graphic for reference. After the 3 waves pullback, the market can resume the move within the previous main cycle in 9 or 13 swings higher or the bounce can fail for the instrument to continue the correction lower in 7 or 11 swings.

    The Following chart show Citigroup price action with the representation of the 5 waves advance and now 3 waves pullback.

    Citigroup Daily Chart
    [​IMG]

    The highlighted blue box in the chart above represents the calculated target for the corrective structure taking place and entering the range of $58.77 - $48.59. It is the area in which the 3 wave regression lower can be ending. Therefore, bulls are expected to show up for a Long opportunity either to resume the previous bullish cycle from 2016 low or produce at least a 3 waves bounce. should see a bounce higher and also now is the time to expect the Fundamental analysis to align with the aforementioned brief primer on the technical.

    We use these extreme areas to look for inflection points in terms of price reaction or to reverse a prior trend, consequently Citigroup is expected to see a recovery in early 2019 after ending the current cycle from 2018 peak.

    Citigroup misses fourth-quarter revenue expectations on much weaker-than-expected bond trading
    • Citigroup, the first of the big U.S. banks to report fourth-quarter results, missed revenue estimates by a half-billion dollars as bond trading revenue declined amid a difficult December for markets.
    • The bank made $1.61 per share in profit, excluding one-time impacts of the U.S. tax overhaul, beating analysts' expectations for $1.55 on better-than-expected cuts in expenses and loan losses.
    Citigroup posted fourth-quarter revenue that missed analysts' estimates by a half-billion dollars as bond trading declined amid a difficult December for markets.

    The bank said fixed-income revenue dropped 21 percent to $1.94 billion from a year earlier as trading conditions deteriorated after the company gave guidance in early December. That miss accounted for the lion's share of the revenue shortfall: Citigroup said it produced $17.1 billion in company-wide revenue, below the $17.6 billion average estimate of analysts surveyed by Refinitiv.

    "A volatile fourth quarter impacted some of our market-sensitive businesses," CEO Michael Corbat said in the earnings release. He added that management "remain committed" to delivering on their 2019 targets.

    The bank made $1.61 in profit per share excluding one-time impacts of the U.S. tax overhaul, beating analysts' expectations for $1.55 on better-than-expected cuts in expenses and loan losses. Operating expenses fell 4 percent to $9.89 billion in the quarter, driven in part by lower compensation costs. Earnings of $4.2 billion rose 14 percent in the quarter, thanks to lower expenses, credit costs and a lower corporate tax rate.
