US Banks See Large Deposit Inflows As Bailout Fund Expires, RRP Liquidity Plunges

With The Fed’s bank bailout facility now expired (and the one-year term loans starting to mature), it is perhaps not surprising that we saw a very large liquidity drain from The Fed’s Reverse Repo facility in the last two days – over $107BN pulled out to fresh cycle lows…

Total deposits – on a seasonally-adjusted basis – rose by $54BN last week…

On a non-seasonally-adjusted basis – remind us again how actual deposits are seasonally-adjusted – banks saw and even larger $82BN deposit inflow…

Excluding foreign bank deposits, domestic banks saw seasonally-adjusted deposits rise $60BN (Large Banks +$59BN, Small Banks +$0.9BN), and non-seasonally-adjusted deposits rose $94BN (Large Banks +$73BN, Small Banks +$21BN)…

However, rather oddly, on the other side of the ledger, loan volumes plunged despite the surge in deposits (Large bank loan volumes tumbled $15BN while Small bank loan volumes rose by $0.3BN)….

And finally, as if you needed a reminder after the recent NYCB debacle-and-bailout – the regional bank crisis is still very much alive as evidenced by the red line below (without The Fed’s expired BTFP facility)

…what else are big banks (green line) going to do with all that cash burning a hole in their pockets (although we do note a big cash drop at large banks – which includes NYCB). Regional bank shares took a tumble this week, erasing all the post-NYCB bailout gains…

As one veteran Fed watcher remarked “this is such a clusterfuck… deposits should be $500BN lower”

Source: Bloomberg

The bottom line is - this looks a lot like a ‘Small Bank’ crisis. The last time this happened, the crisis sparked a sudden $300BN ‘run’ in small bank deposits (this time it’s bigger!).

Is The Fed ‘hoping’ for a controlled bank-run this time - so as many small bank deposits are drained voluntarily, before they are drained all at once in a panic (and the Reverse Repo facility is empty, unable to provide any cushion)?
