Large Bank Loan Volumes Slump Despite Fed Reporting Massive Deposit Inflows

Money-market funds saw inflows and banks’ usage of the Fed’s emergency BTFP facility hit a new high this week, so what malarkey does The Fed have in store when it tries to explain what happened to bank deposits.

Seasonally-adjusted, total deposits rose by $17.6 billion last week (the 3rd straight week on SA inflows)…

And for once, non-seasonally-adjusted deposits rose too (by a huge $121 billion!)

On a non-seasonally-adjusted basis, Large banks saw $81BN inflows and Small banks $53BN inflows (while Foreign banks suffered a $12BN deposit outflow)…

The big surge in NSA (out of nowhere) magically recoupled it with the cumulative SA deposit outflows…

Domestically (removing foreign deposit flows), banks saw a massive $134BN inflow (NSA), which was whittled down to a $31.5BN inflow (SA)…
