"What are the banks doing with these massive excess reserves"?
Asked Doc in the Fed report...

Well maybe they are holding the cash as collateral for the $1.7 TRILLION of Interest Rate Swaps they have written.

Five large commercial banks represent 88% of net current credit exposure.

Wait till this bubble pops...


Whoops, I meant $170 TRILLION.

Also here's the link to the OCC report.

yer taxrape dollars at work....

The stimulus bill includes $17 billion to boost the Pell Grant program and raise the maximum annual award from $4,731 to $5,350.

Pell Grants are awarded to low-income students. The grants don't have to be repaid.

The government doesn't allocate the money based on an assessment of what kinds of job skills are in demand. Rather, students apply to the government for the grants and if eligible can put the money toward the vocational school, college or university to which they've been accepted.

More than $2.3 million in federal economic stimulus grants have gone to eight Tampa Bay area cosmetology and massage schools to pay tuition for the hairdressers, masseuses and nail technicians of tomorrow.

Chad Malm, owner of Salon Jack in Tampa, said he gets as many as six applicants every week. There are plenty of hairdressers, he said, and using stimulus money to put students through beauty school is ridiculous.

Only 1 to 2 percent of beauty school graduates will be working in the field five years from graduation, said Bonnie Poole, treasurer of the Florida Cosmetology Association.

Hairdressers, masseuses and nail technicians are important entry level, stepping stone jobs to those high paying manufacturing positions, like hamburger assembly at restaurant factories.

If you can't convince them; confuse them.

In the bigger scheme of things, is the buying of Treasuries ipso facto considered to be "savings?" If any such purchase of a treasury is considered savings then I guess that might be why our government says that the rate of savings is going up even though fewer people seem to have disposable income these days.

To me savings is like the old money in the bank before all the multiplier effects of fractional reserve banking. Buying a treasury today seems more like a loan to the government and that amount is already spent. A treasury is like giving the money to someone else who has already spent your money by proxy and the government is only acting as the middleman taking a cut of the action while you have to wait 20-30 years to get your money back at a ridiculously low percent interest before any taxes and inflation effects.

I like the thought of the XLF having a two day island top. I even like the thought that gangster Dodd said that Goldman's 1/2 million per employee was too much compensation.

Drop in foreclosures called ‘very scary’

Something to keep track of...

Nobody is sure exactly how many bank walkaways are occurring. For various reasons, they can’t be identified in searches of public real estate and court data without individually pulling case files, experts say.

But nobody questions that they are on the increase.

David Rothstein, a researcher with Policy Matters Ohio, summarized the way they occur like this:

• The lender files a foreclosure, gets the foreclosure judgment in court, takes the property to sheriff’s auction but doesn’t bid on it if no one else does.

• The lender files as above, gets the judgment, sets the sheriff’s auction, then cancels the sale at the last minute.

• The lender files as above but then never requests a sheriff’s auction.

• The lender doesn’t even bother to file foreclosure.

All of these actions leave the foreclosed property in the hands of the original owner who, in many cases, has moved out and is unaware the lender hasn’t taken it.

One indicator of the trend in walkaways is the gap between the number of foreclosure filings by lenders and the number of properties actually sold at sheriff’s auction.

ES 1077 -5.00
Quod Severis Metes

Your life is the sum of a remainder of an unbalanced equation inherent to the programming of the Matrix. You are the eventuality of an internal anomaly, which despite my sincerest efforts, I have been unable to eliminate from what is otherwise a harmony of mathematical precision. While it remains a burden assiduously avoided, it is not unexpected, and thus not beyond a measure of control. Which has led you, inexorably, here.
You haven't answered my question.
Quite right. Interesting. That was quicker than the others.
