JPMorgan has started the bank earnings season, but it is not pleasing reading for the shareholders.

First-quarter earnings were weaker than expected, hit by declines in its mortgages and fixed-income trading activities.

It had been forecast that these areas would see lower activity, hurting revenue, but the impact was greater than expected. Net income was $5.3 billion, a drop of 19% from the same period a year earlier. GAAP earnings per share were down to $1.28, compared to $1.59 in 2013.

Revenue was down 8% to $23.9 billion, a better performance than was forecast in February by the bank, when investors were warned of an expected 15% drop.

This is only the third time in five years that the bank has missed forecasts. It does not bode well for the rest of the sector. The stock is already down 1.9% in the pre-market, at around $56.24, and we will now watch the 200-day moving average closely to see if we are in for a retest of the early February lows around $54.
