Posted in pre-market

If you watched bank stocks on Monday, then you probably saw how the Irish banks may be in for a massive 2010 as Allied Irish Bank (NYSE: AIB) and Bank of Ireland (NYSE: IRE) were both up huge.  Despite these two being hit with negative ratings in new coverage at Barclays this morning, both banks are trading higher after double-digit gains.  At 8:52 AM EST we have AIB up 3.8% at $4.28 on 80,000 pre-market shares and Bank of Ireland (IRE) is up 3.3% at $9.15 on 45,000 pre-market shares.

More bankground is here on yesterday’s move and how it was affecting the other troubled banks in the EU countries which are under the cloud of ratings agencies.
