The Big Picture:
Deutsche Bank has lost almost 90% of its value, since the highs of 2007. It has been the highest losing stock in the DAX since the beginning of this year, losing 53.2% in value. The list of bad decisions made by the bank is long, counting contravention of sanctions against Iran, aid in tax avoidance in Russia, market manipulation. Most recently, the US Department of Justice imposed a fine of 14 billion USD on the bank for risky mortgage deals. The gravity of this fine is made clear ba the fact that Deutsche Bank is only capitalized to the amount of 14.5 billion Euro. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) sees Deutsche Bank as the greatest risk to the finale sector, in case of a new financial crisis, branding it the most dangerous bank. Should a new banking crisis emerge, Germany will be hardest hit.
