Where’s the 4th Biggest Bank Failure?
With the 2nd biggest bank failure in history on Friday and the 3rd biggest over the weekend, it isn’t entirely insane to keep an eye out for imitators. This was a concern as recently as the wee hours of the night when Fed Funds Futures moved to roughly 4% implied yields for the meetings coming up after next week’s. As hours ticked by without another failure, that number moved up about half a percent. This has been the dominant theme today with CPI not having much of an impact. MBS fared far better than Treasuries, mostly because Treasuries fared so much better than MBS up until the reversal.
