Bank of America has reported a second straight quarterly loss, driven by a $2bn (£1.25bn) writedown of its mortgage business.
The bank announced a net loss of $1.2bn in the last three months of 2010, compared with a $5.2bn loss a year ago.
However, last year’s results included a $4bn charge related to the government’s Troubled Asset Relief Program (Tarp).
