Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) die Bank am Freitag zu schließen. Es war das größte US-Unternehmen. Bankpleite seitdem 2008, and various alleged catalysts have been pointed to.

Calls for SVB Intervention as Market Observers Predict Larger Financial Collapse in the U.S.

Over the past week, two U.S. banking institutions, Silvergate Bank und Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) failed. SVB’s Zusammenbruch was the largest banking failure since Washington Mutual (Wamu) in 2008, which was blamed on expanding branches too quickly and holding massive amounts of subprime mortgages lent to so-called unqualified buyers.

Before its collapse, Wamu held $188.3 billion in deposits, while SVB is estimated to have lost around $175.4 billion in deposits. jedoch, while SVB’s deposits at the end of December 2022 were $175.4 Milliarde, customers attempted to remove $42 Milliarde on Thursday alone.

Other analysts and market observers are blaming the illogical inverted yield curve that long and short-term Treasuries are facing today, as well as the U.S. Federal Reserve Zinserhöhungen. Soona Amhaz, founder and managing partner at Volt Capital, sagte: “The open secret is that technically most U.S. banks are bankrupt right now, as they’re all sitting on long-duration treasuries that are underwater in a 4% interest rate environment.”

Banks own long-term paper at extremely low-interest rates,„Schiff angegeben. He continued:

They can’t compete with short-term Treasuries. Mass withdrawals from depositors seeking higher yields will result in a wave of bank failures.

Stop this crisis NOW,” Sacks getwittert. “Announce that all depositors will be safe. Place SVB with a Top 4 bank. Do this before Monday’s opening, or there will be contagion and the crisis will spread.”
