Transactions per account reached 30. In 3Q16, $PYPL processed over $87Bil in

$ETFC's net interest margin of 259 BPs fell mainly due to faster prepayment speeds on the securities portfolio, continued run-off of higher yielding of the legacy loan portfolio and an unfavorable shift in margin balances to lower price tiers. Full year 2016 net interest margin is expected to be 260-265 BPs, with 4Q16 in the mid-250s.
