Spain's Bankia reports a €2.6B loss in Q3, bringing cumulative 2012 losses to €7.1B as provisioning for bad loans rises to €11.5B. Non-performing loans rose to 13.3% from 11% last quarter. This figure was just 7.63% 2 quarters ago. The scope of the increasing losses raises the idea of another bailout for the bank (#1 was 2 months ago).

    Before today's announcement, it was known that Bankia needs another 24.7 billion EUR in capital:
    "Raises the idea" is an understatement to say the least.

    Can you imagine where the numbers would be if Bankia actually had to liquidate the bad loans in this portfolio?
