Here’s what one trader on StockTwits recently had to say in regards to C:

    $XLF $KRE $JPM $BAC $C The main reason for the Stress test now is that the Federal Reserve is, drum roll please, bored. Markets are humming along very well and they don't have anything constructive to do as they already set the rates at 0 for the next 3 years.

    So, what do they do in the mean time? Let's poke around the banks and see whether there are issues… Funny thing is that we were at 20% unemployment just few months ago and nothing happened to the banks as they all hoarded heavy reserves for the potential losses and now they are testing for 12.5% unemployment? Are thy for kidding me?!?

    SImply put, it is a joke and the financials will be up nicely going forward, IMHO!
