Big banks have rallied since Donald Trump's election, and their profits look promising too, thank to a bit jump in total trading revenue.
Morgan Stanley (MS) probably had the biggest jump in total trading revenue, with a gain of 23%, according to an analyst at Deutsche Bank. JPMorgan Chase (JPM) and Citigroup (C) likely will report a 21% increase in trading volume, followed by Bank of America (BAC) and Goldman Sachs (GS) .
Prospects look bright for this year too. A Morgan Stanley analyst says lower taxes and less regulation could "set the stage for the bull case."
