What is the current state of the banking industry?

2020 was an extremely challenging year for the banks. Share prices across the sector halved as the pandemic took hold and investors fretted over how the economic downturn would impact the banks’ retail and commercial businesses. However, thanks to unprecedented fiscal and monetary support, combined with successful vaccine programmes in the US & UK, banks’ share prices have since recovered. Several US firms in the sector, including JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs, are now even back to all-time highs. So, will Q2’s earnings season accelerate this recovery across the banking industry, or could weak results send prices downwards once again?
