Fed, Treasury, and FDIC Announce Actions to Backstop Banks

Fed, Treasury, and FDIC Announce Actions to Backstop Banks

The U.S. government on Sunday sought to affirm confidence in the U.S. banking system by announcing protection for all depositors in Silicon Valley Bank.

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen approved measures to resolve the failure of Silicon Valley Bank “in a manner that fully protects all depositors,” the Treasury said Sunday in a joint statement with the Fed and FDIC.

This means that deposits beyond the $250,000 limit on FDIC insurance will be available on Monday. The Treasury said the measures will not come at a cost to taxpayers.

In a joint statement by the U.S. Treasury, the Federal Reserve, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp, the government said:

Today we are taking decisive actions to protect the U.S. economy by strengthening public confidence in our banking system. This step will ensure that the U.S. banking system continues to perform its vital roles of protecting deposits and providing access to credit to households and businesses in a manner that promotes strong and sustainable economic growth.

After receiving a recommendation from the boards of the FDIC and the Federal Reserve, and consulting with the President, Secretary Yellen approved actions enabling the FDIC to complete its resolution of Silicon Valley Bank, Santa Clara, California, in a manner that fully protects all depositors. Depositors will have access to all of their money starting Monday, March 13. No losses associated with the resolution of Silicon Valley Bank will be borne by the taxpayer.

We are also announcing a similar systemic risk exception for Signature Bank, New York, New York, which was closed today by its state chartering authority. All depositors of this institution will be made whole. As with the resolution of Silicon Valley Bank, no losses will be borne by the taxpayer.

Shareholders and certain unsecured debtholders will not be protected. Senior management has also been removed. Any losses to the Deposit Insurance Fund to support uninsured depositors will be recovered by a special assessment on banks, as required by law.

Finally, the Federal Reserve Board on Sunday announced it will make available additional funding to eligible depository institutions to help assure banks have the ability to meet the needs of all their depositors.

The U.S. banking system remains resilient and on a solid foundation, in large part due to reforms that were made after the financial crisis that ensured better safeguards for the banking industry. Those reforms combined with today’s actions demonstrate our commitment to take the necessary steps to ensure that depositors’ savings remain safe.

The Federal Reserve added:

To support American businesses and households, the Federal Reserve Board on Sunday announced it will make available additional funding to eligible depository institutions to help assure banks have the ability to meet the needs of all their depositors. This action will bolster the capacity of the banking system to safeguard deposits and ensure the ongoing provision of money and credit to the economy.

The Federal Reserve is prepared to address any liquidity pressures that may arise.

The financing will be made available through the creation of a new Bank Term Funding Program (BTFP), offering loans of up to one year in length to banks, savings associations, credit unions, and other eligible depository institutions pledging U.S. Treasuries, agency debt and mortgage-backed securities, and other qualifying assets as collateral. These assets will be valued at par. The BTFP will be an additional source of liquidity against high-quality securities, eliminating an institution’s need to quickly sell those securities in times of stress.

With approval of the Treasury Secretary, the Department of the Treasury will make available up to $25 billion from the Exchange Stabilization Fund as a backstop for the BTFP. The Federal Reserve does not anticipate that it will be necessary to draw on these backstop funds.

After receiving a recommendation from the boards of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and the Federal Reserve, Treasury Secretary Yellen, after consultation with the President, approved actions to enable the FDIC to complete its resolution of Silicon Valley Bank in a manner that fully protects all depositors, both insured and uninsured. These actions will reduce stress across the financial system, support financial stability and minimize any impact on businesses, households, taxpayers, and the broader economy.

The Board is carefully monitoring developments in financial markets. The capital and liquidity positions of the U.S. banking system are strong and the U.S. financial system is resilient.

Depository institutions may obtain liquidity against a wide range of collateral through the discount window, which remains open and available. In addition, the discount window will apply the same margins used for the securities eligible for the BTFP, further increasing lendable value at the window.

The Board is closely monitoring conditions across the financial system and is prepared to use its full range of tools to support households and businesses, and will take additional steps as appropriate.

So how is the Fed getting this approval through CONGRESS!

And the Intercept reports that earlier the bank had successfully lobbied for the rollback of protective rules established in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. "The lobbying effort managed to exempt banks the size of Silicon Valley Bank from more stringent regulations, including stress tests aimed at uncovering the type of weaknesses that led to the bank's implosion Friday."

When will people realize the Usury banking system is a fraud, that you cannot pay a debt with even more debt, and that Fiat currency is just monopoly money; with the monopoly being the FED and banks.

The Fiat money is created out of thin air: with banks using Fiat deposits to secure up to ten times as much loan capital. They encourage people to live on debt, then when they cannot pay off the debt-take REAL ASSETS!

This also happens to countries like Greece who were paying 20% interest then had to give : ports, airports and islands to pay their debt!

This latest rouse in a shell game: called hide the debt and they have created another identity to help them do that; the BTFP. They want to put the people to sleep while the wealthy extract their funds so that when the people wake up again it will be too late!

Americas debt is over $31.6 Trillion: that is nearly $95,000 per person; nobody wanted to buy dollar bonds at 4.005%-NOBODY!

This whole system has run it's coarse and is about to come falling down: just as it is designed to do!
+3 # Years of Rampant Speculation and Excessive risk-taking are “coming back to bite them hard” the situation will “devolve very rapidly.”White Lightning aka Raptor 2023-03-13 01:53
Stephanie Pomboy, the US economist known for her predictions of America’s early 2000s housing bubble and the 2008 global financial collapse, has sounded the alarm on a recent spate of bank and cryptocurrency failures that could be just the beginning of another cascading crisis.

“What we’re facing right now is really serious,” Pomboy, founder of economic research firm MacroMavens, said on Friday in a Fox News interview. “We are on the brink of a 2008-style financial crisis.”

Pomboy made her assessment in the wake of Friday’s shutdown of Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) by federal regulators – the second-largest failure in US banking history. SVB’s collapse came on the heels of this week’s closure of cryptocurrency lender Silvergate Bank, as well as the bankruptcies last fall of crypto firms FTX, BlockFi, and Three Arrows Capital.

“Look, you don’t raise rates in record fashion on an economy toting record leverage at maximum speculation and expect no consequences,” the economist said. “This was clearly going to happen, and now we’re seeing the weak links in the chain break. The areas where speculation was most rampant and most egregious are clearly coming down.” She added that years of excessive risk-taking are “coming back to bite them hard” and predicted that the situation will “devolve very rapidly.”

More than $250 billion in Covid-19 relief funds were lost to “fraud” and “waste,” the directors of three US government agencies testified before the House Oversight and Accountability subcommittee on Thursday.

Compounding what Deputy Inspector General Sheldon Shoemaker of the Small Business Administration (SBA) called “the biggest fraud in a generation,” the officials stressed that the figures they gave represented an extremely conservative estimate of the total amount lost as they did not include the amount defrauded from the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program.

# Draw Neigh To God And He Draws Neigh To YouDolph 2023-03-14 00:42
You draw neigh to God by reading His Word, the Bible, following His guidance and talking to Him, praying.

Most have one foot in the world and one foot in the kingdom, or less.

Many are pseudo Christians, luke-warm, but you must be truly born again, sold out to see God work in your life.

When you know that you know that God is real and His Bible is true it's a new ball game. It makes every day a joyful experience but to get there you must make a serious effert, not half-hearted.

Politics can be a religion and you can tell who is saved from what comes out of their mouths.

I've been saved 44 years and I am hoping for the end of this age as I see the perfect storm is coming. It's a time of great joy to me because I know the script. I've read the end of the Book and the Christians win.

If you're not happy you need to get saved but do it quickly. The rapture could be tonight!!! It's very easy and it's free! Wake up to reality!

You want to see people thrown out of their jobs and their homes?

You want to see people starving and homeless because they have no money, and their banks are closed because of a National Bank Holiday?

Who are YOU???

What is the matter with YOU???

So the can was kicked down the road for awhile. This can has been kicked down the road since the 1970's, longer than most of your readers/listeners have been alive.

Exactly WHY are you NOT happy?

What is the matter with YOU???

Get into your prayer closet and converse with Almighty God. You need a check up and a tune up. Something's way off here.

Most people are relieved, but you are depressed about and mocking this development. Why?

You want people to be homeless and starving and....dying???

And yet, any intelligent reader with a tiny iota of reading comprehension could ascertain that there is no commentary or opinion from the author. It is almost word-for-word transcription of the Fed's statement.
So please explain to us who read your disparaging little rant, what exactly do you know? If I were Hal, or to say if it was me that you did that to, I'd send you a GIF of my behind to your email so you could kiss it.

Grow up and start dealing with things like an adult. Pull up your big boy/girl pants and get to work while you can. Buy some dry beans, rice, noodles, canned vegetables and some cans of soup.

If folks go hungry, it isn't like the information wasn't there. No one wants a disaster, but no one asked us little folks. Steve Quayle has been begging folks to prepare for 25-30 years. To get out of debt, live within their means. It sure as hell isn't Hal's fault and he's trying to interject a bit of levity in a dire situation. If you can't laugh a bit, here and there, you aren't going to make it through what's coming.

But Hal's joy of his gold and silver will be fleeting.

“They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed: their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumblingblock of their iniquity.”

Nope, I'm not missing that either.

In fact I know the Bolsheviks plan to crash our economy and our banks at some point, so they can roll out the Great Reset. I've read their plans, have you? The Protocols of Zion

But until that crisis happens, and it will be a horrible disaster whenever it happens, many people are spared the horrors of that and the even WORSE Horrors of the after math:

Digital Currency including Social Crediting, as is currently happening to the poor Slaves in Communist China now. You a bad commie: your bank account is frozen, you can't buy or sell.

So I get that. But the longer that day is postponed the better it will be for every person on this planet. And the greater the chance that MAYBE some of the young people today, "might" get up the nerve to oust these psychopaths from control of our country via the 2nd Amendment.

As long as that dreaded financial collapse day has not come there is hope.....not much I realize that. The young people today, totally hooked on their TV brainwashing machines and other tech gadgets. No one cleaning their guns and making plans to take back our country.

But the longer the day is put off of the financial crash, the more there is hope some Patriots will get off their duffs and take back our country, and the more people come to saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

Anyone vested in Gold & Silver coins are just fooling themselves. You won't be able to buy or sell anything in a 100% Digital world.

“They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed: their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumblingblock of their iniquity.”

Read the last book of the Bible. Twenty seven percent of the Bible is prophesy. This is a man-made perfect storm, the fruition of man's rebellious ways. God is allowing man to crash civilization which couldn't be more appropriate.

Israel turned their ear from all their prophets and lost their country. They actually killed Christ and all the prophets, 1Thes.2:15.

Most here mock Bible prophecy and the prophets' warnings. Even this was prophesied, 2Thes. 2:3

"Don’t be carried away and deceived regardless of what they say.

# interest rates will go down for a whilewatchmann 2023-03-12 22:00
Based on experience the interest rates will go down for a while. I think Powell has over played his hand this past year, the roosters have come home to roost, and it doesn't look good.

So based on past experience, I "think" we will see interest rates go down.......for a while anyway.

The financing will be made available through the creation of a new Bank Term Funding Program (BTFP), offering loans of up to one year in length to banks, savings associations, credit unions, and other eligible depository institutions pledging U.S. Treasuries, agency debt and mortgage-backed securities, and other qualifying assets as collateral. These assets will be valued at par.

Mortgage backed securities are what sunk SVB. Interest rates have shot up, and those MBS are dropping like rocks. Same for treasuries, unless TIPS. AND THEY ARE BASING THE LOANS ON THE SECURITIES AT PAR. That means, the govt is loaning out money on items that are inflated in value. Meaning, the backstop for the govt loans will not cover the loan; they are worth MUCH LESS than PAR.
To me, thats the giveaway. The govt is desperate to avoid panic, and are throwing money at these banks that made bad decisions. Just like 2008. And here Yellen said "no bailouts". She lied then.
IMHO of course.....
+2 # RE: Anyone catch this...FewThereBe 2023-03-12 21:33

Yes, key point. Instead of at market value; which, because of the rising interests propagated by the Fed, values have been negatively impacted.

The BTFP will be an additional source of liquidity against high-quality securities, eliminating an institution’s need to quickly sell those securities in times of stress."

So after a year and the bank is still dead in the water and only floating because of mortgage backed securities, who gets to hold the title to those securities?

Play ball because the FED will have you by yours. There was never an outcome to this where you and I could win.

+2 # The Value of Sophistry & Debt..paulattahoe 2023-03-12 22:54
Watchmann, Maybe it's time to look beyond your moral hazard lectures about Boeing and Raytheon, as that's just another liberal mantra trick that raises debt to a value higher than assets.

You might need to realize that's how we got into this debt mess.

Silicon Valley Bank was “funded by over $173 billion in deposits (of which $151.5 billion are uninsured).” Not that most people have this problem, but anyone who goes over the FDIC limit at any bank is not too bright. Or, as in this case, an intelligent group of liberal Satanist money changers.

Quoting watchmann:
Look folks, we are in the middle of WW3, if all the banks fail now, how will Boeing and Raytheon "make payroll" in order to keep producing Weapons of War???

I hadn't seen that little tidbit until you pointed it out.

Yes, now the banks, most of which are slightly insolvent to dramatically so, can unload all their non-performing assets onto the Fed as "high quality", just like they did in 2008 with all their bundled Mortgage Backed Securities. I hear the Fed is still sitting on a number of those, and the rest they sold at a loss.

So yeah, the potential is there for another injection of $Trillions in keyboard Dollars.

There will never be restored confidence in a system at the end of a grand debt supercycle. There will just be palliative language and activity until it appears in another form. The next form will involve the banking system once again. There's no getting away from highly inflationary final stage debt runaway without letting massive deflation occur, and the Fed and Treasury would rather hyperinflate everyone else's savings to nothing before they let that occur.
