Christiania Bank, Norway's second-largest commercial bank, reports third-quarter foreign exchange and financial instruments trading gains of NKr24 million compared to NKr67 million in the corresponding period of 1993. The poor result was due to the "negative outcome" of Christiana's trading for its own account, officials say. For the first nine months of this year gains on foreign exchange trading amount to NKr145 million against NKr246 million last year.
