🚨 Banks are borrowing from the Fed at historic levels approaching the 2008 financial crisis. 🚨 Here's a thread on what's happening 🧵:
In the past week, banks borrowed $110.3 billion from the primary lending window, highlighting how they have been bracing for potential runs on deposits in the aftermath of #SVB and #SignatureBank collapses.
As a result, the Fed's total assets have expanded to $8.78 trillion (more than double the $4.1 trillion reported in Feb 2020), signifying a reversal of its long effort to reduce the size of its balance sheet.

Two striking resemblances btw #SVB & former @CreditSuisse.
Both banks did not pay attention to the top 8–20 risks, which every board must.
Either these banks kept their risk desks understaffed or didn't hire key managerial position holders at all.
Need introspection now.
@CreditSuisse It was reported on this forum that #SVB did not have a CRO for some 8 months during the VC Market spiralling.
Also, I read just now that former @CreditSuisse was sacking key MDs in their across their risk desks.
This trend continued since the #Archegos fiasco surfaced after 2019
CRO Chief Risk Officer or Head of Risk Management is a key managerial decision-making position and C Suite Level role which every financial institution can afford to keep empty these days.
The Front, Middle, and Back Office roles form key lines of defence against top risks.

Así estará la situación de fea en el @CreditSuisse, que el día 17/03/2023 su valor bursátil era de $8.500 millones y un día después fue vendido por $3250 millones
al @UBS bank. Para aceptar comprarlo, el UBS pidió una línea de crédito directa con el...

[Hilo] 🧶

Banco Central de Suiza @SNB_BNS por +$100 mil millones, de los cuales $54 mil millones ya fueron inyectados para cumplir con la demanda de sus clientes, el UBS también le pidió una garantía de $9000 millones al SNB para cubrir posibles pérdidas después de la compra.

Lo que ocurrió fue prácticamente una venta forzada o expropiación del banco.

¿Por qué?

El @CreditSuisse era considerado hasta hace poco el 2do banco más grande de Suiza, en el 2007 su capital de mercado era de $300 mil millones, pero fue vendido al 1% de ese valor.

👀 lol #ScottShay (AKA #SignatureBank's theologian in residence, also known for his Gordon Gekko routine) got absolutely rekt on the final day of $SBNY trading. which I guess explains that weird bounce from $70 to $100 in the morning

at least a $3 million loss. @NotChaseColeman
@NotChaseColeman oh Scott, your 500,000 shares of $SBNY were an equity allocation of infinite jest.

➤ worth over $150 million at all time high...
➤ $77 million on February 1st...
➤ $50 million on March 9th...

...and now it's a $0.
@NotChaseColeman whoops I read that wrong, I guess the noted theologian only lost $414,000 on the final morning.

gg scott!

Concerns over small US banks ⚠️

Something has happened since the start of the banking liquidity crisis we are all watching unfold.

It has created a scenario in which perceived risk is completely polarised within the banking world.

Let me explain 👇
Since the fall of SVB and Signature Bank we've seen a rush to ensure that 100% of deposits in both banks are backed and no one with their money in either loses their deposit
Silicon Valley Bank had 95%+ of their deposits over the $250k insurance limit provided by the FDIC for protection if banks go under

The FDIC insurance means that deposits up to $250k are deemed safe and backed, anything above is not and vulnerable in the case of a bank failure

El banco central de los EE.UU @federalreserve tuvo que abandonar su política restrictiva de liquidez monetaria y activó una especie de rescate para los bancos que están en aprietos, entregándoles efectivo a cambio de bonos con 100% de su valor facial.


Hilo] 🧶:

Una de las razones que llevó a la quiebra reciente del #Silicon_Valley_Bank y #SignatureBank en EE.UU fue que tenían muchos bonos de largo plazo a 10, 20 y 30 años y el valor de los mismos en el mercado secundario es mucho menor a cuando fueron comprados. Esto porque no...

son atractivos para los inversionistas. Cuando hubo la corrida bancaria, dichos bancos para cubrir la demanda de sus clientes tuvieron que venderle a pérdida muchos de esos instrumentos financieros a otros bancos. Un ejemplo fue @GoldmanSachs que compró $21 mil millones.👇

ELI5: Why did #SilvergateBank / $SI just implode?

I realize some people may be wondering WTF just happened so here's the unannotated short version...

The story begins when $SI, a small regional bank, decided to go full crypto.
A bunch of crypto companies used $SI to hold user deposits, stablecoin backing, etc - $USD cash. As it got more crypto customers it grew - $SI went from being a small bank to a medium bank, holding IIRC ~$15 billion in customer deposits.
Since it had all this cash around $SI execs decided to invest it in a very safe asset: US Treasury bills. Basically they loaned the government of the United States money in exchange for interest plus guarantee of getting it back in N years.
