Large institutions keep their funds in treasuries and other secure debt products. Sometimes they need to convert these holdings to cash to make payments on whatever. They lend their securities to other entities overnight and agree to pay a bit extra when they buy them back the next day (the interest rate). If you're on the other end and you want to buy these securities, and you feel confident about the counterparty's ability to pay them back, you won't ask for much interest. If you don't really want them, or if you think the counterparty is going to default overnight or something like that, you'll demand a higher interest rate to make it worth your while.

In the past week this interest rate has briefly bspiked to literally its highest on record with no obvious reason, making it really expensive to lend money overnight this way. So instead of banks not lending to each other anymore and causing a liquidity crisis, the Fed is stepping in to guarantee that these trades will go through by acting as counterparty of last resort. They conducted a repo operation for $53b on Tuesday, more concerning is that they did one this morning allotting for $75b of repo but were asked for $80b meaning a bunch of entities were short $5b of funding today. They're doing the same thing tomorrow morning and if the operations keep getting oversubscribed it's a sign something is seriously wrong in the money markets.

I'm really into doom porn and hope the repo operation is oversubscribed by like $20b, if something like that happens the shit is absolutely going to hit the fan and it will be like 2008 all over again.

Who could the borrower(s) be that had to pay 10%? Would it not have to be entities that have access to the Repo market yet do not have access to the Fed? Do I even understand that much correctly?

No; while they could presumably go to the discount window doing THAT is a self-declaration of distress, which NOBODY wants to do (especially if it's someone like DoucheBank!)

What you're seeing is the perversity of the Fed's "excess reserve" nonsense. The Fed should NOT be paying anything on those deposits; they should be willing to hold them at a negative rate reflecting the cost of custody, but never, ever pay someone to leave them there.

The entire point of having the privilege of being a bank is that you lend out the funds you have in excess of your required reserves. The Repo market is a LENDING market; it is, at its core, about balancing reserve and transactional requirements on a short term basis (overnight to a few days.) If there is a shortage of funds in that market DUE TO THE CHOICES MADE BY LENDERS the Fed's job is NOT to step in -- their job in that situation is to BITCH SLAP the organizations involved.

Over 200B. 53 on Monday, 75 yesterday, and another 75 today.

Yesterday's offering was oversubscribed, meaning that total liquidity wasn't sufficient for all the borrowers, causing rates to still be elevated. Today's repo was EVEN MORE oversubscribed, and rates are still above the PREVIOUS Fed target range of 2.25%. They lowered it to 2% but the rates haven't even normalized into the previous range lol.

Fed has no choice but to keep up the QE (even though they would never call it QE), it's either that or let the overnight lending market collapse as companies trample over each other to not be one of the poor schmucks to be left insolvent.

Check it out brainlets. The liquidity operations began on Monday, right after the Yemeni/Iranian/whoever attack on Saudi oil refining facilities. The Saudis are now importing crude oil and other oil products and are supposedly bleeding $400 million / day.

The reason for the liquidity shortfall is likely related. Perhaps Saudi Aramco debt was being used as collateral. Their counterparty could have gotten spooked and demanded higher rates.

>> No.15645941

If you're a trader at a bank, and you have a suspicion which bank is weak, the logical response would be to encourage your own bank to suck up as much of the liquidity the Fed is offering as possible (depriving the other bank of it) and then bet on their default using CDSs.

Here's how this works. Banks put excess reserves into fed vaults and earn 1.80%. Repo markets are collateralized with treasuries and other high grade assets allowing the default risk to be ignored. When a bank can't meet it's daily reserve requirements it goes to the repo market and sells it's treasuries or other holdings. Banks who have excess reserves on that day can lend to the banks in need at a rate greater than 1.80% to earn extra profit. Lender gives dollars, borrower gives treasury, mbs, etc as collateral, duration is usually one day. Banking system working normal.

What is occurring now. Banks are in need of dollars but there is a shortage to the point that repo rates shot up to 10% before lenders stepped in. This means banks are running out of dollar reserves that they can lend. This is really important because the fiat world runs on fraction reserve, dollar shortage very bad.

Fed steps in. They create dollars and lend them to banks injecting dollar liquidity. Next day the loan is done the bank gives back the Fed the borrowed money plus interest and the fed gives back the collateral, dollar liquidity is removed. Repo rates are still too high, there is still a dollar shortage. Fed does the operation again, but each day the loan is done the dollar injection is removed and banks are still not able to raise their own reserves which means something is going wrong on the banking side.

This is basically QE that is followed by QT daily. If banks can't raise reserves the Fed will have to start another round of QE without QT to inject permanent dollar liquidity. The better question is why are banks running out of reserves that they can lend???

>> No.15647730

> This means banks are running out of dollar reserves that they can lend. This is really important because the fiat world runs on fraction reserve, dollar shortage very bad.
You were right up to this point. This is wrong though. There can be no shortage, as there is 1.5T in excess reserves parked at the Fed. So the institutions borrowing at 10% must not have good collateral they are able to post.

>> No.15647761

What's interesting is that this all happens a few days after oil had its multi-sigma move because of the Saudi rig getting blown up. If anything was on the bad side of an oil derivatives contract, and got caught without being properly hedged, that could cause some problems for them. If for instance Deutsche bank's massive derivatives book wasn't properly balanced, and now they have liabilities out the wazoo from their naked leveraged short term call writing.. They might need need to borrow fat stacks to pretend they are still solvent.

>> No.15650129

Except that means fuck all.

The fed would in this case be the lender of last resort, as it should be, it's been happening for several days in a row, and still oversubscribed.

That indicates an inability to resolve the lending by the banks themselves, and that in and of itself means that either or both:

A. banks are losing trust in one another, which the entire system necessitates.
B. one or more large institutions in the segment (looking at you Deutsche) are literally on the brink of insolvency.

Regardless, the entire situation hints at a systemic crack that more or less the entire financial system absolutely depends on.

UBI would have a more disruptive effect because average people’s view of fiat would change. Giving money to bankers that already know it’s a sham, and will never let it reach average people is less of a problem.

>> No.15651111

I see it the opposite way because these bankers lose so many gambles on wall street because they have too much money they take extreme risks. UBI would increase spending on domestic goods and services most. Bankers have too much money, it's not being invested in anything besides stock buybacks. They've ran out of options to spend it on so they create debt instruments. Derivatives built around anything they can think of until we need to bail them out

The Fed won't let deflation happen, their target is 2% and they'll make damn sure they hit that target. The problem is deflationary forces on the market are so strong, the consumer has been tapped out on credit and has no more steam, they'll end up hyperinflating the dollar to generate the 2% yield. We still have another 12 - 18 months before that happens though. Like we'll see negative rates and 0% loans this time next year and they still won't hit their target.

Or who knows maybe the crash comes all at once and the Fed is caught with its pants down.

Let me clear some stuff up. I manage a large money market portfolio.

It is NOT a credit issue, evidenced by:
1) no change in CDS spreads for primary dealers.
2) Higher volume of GCF (cleared) and DVP (Bilateral) Repo. If this is a credit issue the volume would go DOWN

This is caused by increased UST issuances, dealers almost always finance USTs with repo. They make money on the flow, not the interest on these bonds.

Supply of repos is limited by amount available for investments at money markets and GSEs. When demand goes up, supply is very inelastic (Fed Funds sellers can't just switch to repos. Legal docs takes weeks/months to set up, among other reasons). Money Funds are have very strict mandate on weighted average maturity and weighted average life of the fund.

>> No.15652318

>Those are very very short term loans that are repurchased in the AM
That means the loan and interest are paid back to the fed, removing more funds from the market. Not a big deal for 3 days or in a vacuum. They're also selling MBS and UST off the FED's balance sheet. All of this in the current climate is creating a money supply squeeze. Trump wants to weaken the dollar FED loaning short term would take interest out daily. Or am I confused on this?
>He believes libra is the best bet for crypto
Schiff selling a stablecoin. No one should have explained bitcoin as the next $ and gold. It's slightly like both but much different, he's afraid because BTC is taking a slice of gold's market. It's taking most of the youth with it, Peter's protecting his holdings.

how does an increase in collateral (UST) cause repo rates to spike, exactly?
from what i can discern, the primary dealers take newly issued UST, swap into repo market, but there's a lot of primary dealer demand, and so *that's* the mechanism driving this. is that correct?
if so, what's the relationship with bank reserves and corporate taxes that the media is talking about?
