The banks all confirmed ample liquidity is available for lending to consumer and business markets.
Washington — Secretary Mnuchin conducted a series of calls today with the CEOs of the nations six largest banks: Brian Moynihan, Bank of America; Michael Corbat, Citi; David Solomon, Goldman Sachs; Jamie Dimon, JP Morgan Chase, James Gorman, Morgan Stanley; Tim Sloan, Wells Fargo. The CEOs confirmed that they have ample liquidity available for lending to consumer, business markets, and all other market operations. He also confirmed that they have not experienced any clearance or margin issues and that the markets continue to function properly.
Tomorrow, the Secretary will convene a call with the President’s Working Group on financial markets, which he chairs. This includes the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the Commodities Futures Trading Commission. He has also invited the office of the Comptroller of the Currency, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation to participate as well. These key regulators will discuss coordination efforts to assure normal market operations.
“We continue to see strong economic growth in the U.S. economy with robust activity from consumers and business,” stated Secretary Mnuchin and added “With the govemment shutdown, Treasury will have critical employees to maintain its core operations at Fiscal Services, IRS, and other critical functions within the department.”
Mnuchin, likely at the behest of Trump, spoke with leaders of 6 of America’s largest banks to discuss liquidity and the specter of recent ominous happenings. Judging on previous happenings, this happening is the onset of a set of actions purposes to reinforce confidence and get markets going again. Often times, these actions are met with cynicism and viewed as confirmation that something dreadful is about to happen. However, at the end of the long road, wanton chicanery and manipulation will provide for higher equity prices.If you enjoy the content at iBankCoin, please follow us on Twitter
