Small US Banks Suffer Biggest Deposit Outflows Since SVB Crisis, Money-Market Inflows Soar

Last week saw the magic of The Fed’s “seasonal adjustments” turn a $66BN outflow into a $41BN deposit inflow for domestic banks. With money market fund inflows accelerating and usage of The Fed’s emergency funding facility at a new record high, who knows what imaginative gifts the clever people at The Eccles Building will drop on us today.

We leave you with one thought – in 6 months and counting, America’s ‘smaller’ banks will need to find that $108-billion plus from somewhere as that is when the BTFP bailout program ends (theoretically).

Will regional bank balance sheets be stabilized by then? They better hope for a serious recession to smash yields back down (and TSY prices up).
