Release Date: December 1, 2010 For immediate release The Federal Reserve Board on Wednesday posted detailed information on its public website about more than 21,000 individual credit and other transactions conducted to stabilize markets during the recent financial crisis, restore the flow of credit to American families and businesses, and support economic recovery and job creation in the aftermath of the crisis. Many of the transactions, conducted through a variety of broad-based lending facilities, provided liquidity to financial institutions and markets through fully secured, mostly short-term loans. Purchases of agency mortgage-backed securities (MBS) supported mortgage and housing markets, lowered longer-term interest rates, and fostered economic growth. Dollar liquidity swap lines with foreign central banks helped stabilize dollar funding markets abroad, thus contributing to the restoration of stability in U.S. markets. Other transactions provided liquidity to particular institutions whose disorderly failure could have severely stressed an already fragile financial system. As financial conditions have improved, the need for the broad-based facilities has dissipated, and most were closed earlier this year. The Federal Reserve followed sound risk-management practices in administering all of these programs, incurred no credit losses on programs that have been wound down, and expects to incur no credit losses on the few remaining programs. These facilities were open to participants that met clearly outlined eligibility criteria; participation in them reflected the severe market disruptions during the financial crisis and generally did not reflect participants' financial weakness. The Federal Reserve is committed to transparency and has previously provided extensive aggregate information on its facilities in weekly and monthly reports. As provided by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010, transaction-level details now are posted from December 1, 2007, to July 21, 2010, in the following programs: * Asset-Backed Commercial Paper Money Market Mutual Fund Liquidity Facility (AMLF) * Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility (TALF) * Primary Dealer Credit Facility (PDCF) * Commercial Paper Funding Facility (CPFF) * Term Securities Lending Facility (TSLF) * TSLF Options Program (TOP) * Term Auction Facility (TAF) * Agency MBS purchases * Dollar liquidity swap lines with foreign central banks * Assistance to Bear Stearns, including Maiden Lane * Assistance to American International Group, including Maiden Lane II and III Additionally, discount window and open market operation transactions after July 21, 2010, will be posted with a two-year lag.
więcej na stronach FED, gdzie można samemu poszperać w konkretnych programach pomocowych FED. Usta spiskowców NWO i audytów FED powinny zostać przynajmniej tymczasowo ładnie zatkane.
Jako ciekawostkę należy zaznaczyć, iż banki europejskie, które mają oddziały w US, szczególnie aktywnie korzystały z pomocy. Co ciekawe sam Goldman Sachs zbytnio nie korzystał z pomocy (piszę to po wstępnej, płytkiej weryfikacji papierów), a raczej tuzy bankowości detalicznej jak Bank of America czy Wells Fargo. Są już pierwsze wiadomości w tej sprawie, np tutaj czy tutaj. EDIT: Pierwsze tabelki prezentuje już www.zerohedge.com. Ciekawie wygląda zestawienie skupu papierów MBS. Zwracam uwagę na dwa pierwsze miejsca, oba banki są europejskie.
