The following video is from Monday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with analysts Joe Magyer and Jason Moser, discuss the top business and investing stories.
In this segment, several European banks are up today due to the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision relaxing several tough liquidity requirements, and postponing several new banking regulations by an additional four years. The guys discuss why the process of governments activating new banking regulations is often a long drawn out process, with many such postponements and refinements, and why this is positive for the banks involved.
