muscleman Posted May 22, 2014 Share Posted May 22, 2014 http://www.bankregdata.com/articles.asp Interesting article. The view is that if we combine the treasury purchases from the mega banks and Fed, the tapering is actually zero since January. Why did these mega banks ramp up purchasing so much? Were they pushed by the Fed to do this? Are these banks able to continue doing this? I think based on their earnings, if they were pushed by Fed to do this, they actually can. Fed has some levers to push the banks, such as "stress tests". Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
