Market Making

Market Making segment income before income taxes increased to $47 million, for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 from $8 million for the same period in 2013. Removing the effects of currency translation, the Market Making segment produced $31 million pretax income in this quarter, compared to $50 million for the same period last year. The decrease in market making profits, excluding currency translation effects, was driven by lower volatility, a lower actual to implied volatility ratio and lower trading volumes. Currency translation gains were $15 million in this quarter, compared to a $43 million loss in the year-ago quarter.

Effects of Foreign Currency Diversification

In connection with our currency strategy, we have determined to base our net worth in GLOBALs, a basket of 16 major currencies in which we hold our equity. In this quarter, our currency diversification program increased our comprehensive earnings by $26 million, as the U.S. dollar value of the GLOBAL increased by approximately 0.5%. The effects of currency diversification are reported as components of Market Making Trading Gains and (2) Other Comprehensive Income (“OCI”). In this quarter 58% of the GLOBAL effect was captured in Market Making Trading Gains in the Net Income section of the Statement of Comprehensive Income, with the remainder reported as OCI in the separate Comprehensive Income section of the Statement of Comprehensive Income.
