Chart of the week
For the second week in a row, commercial banks massively requested the Fed's loan facilities and this for a total amount of $163.9 billion, the week ending March 22, an amount almost identical to the previous week (164.8 billion ).
Banks' recourse to the Fed's Discount Window moderated, after reaching an amount well above the 2008 peak, to remain very high (110.2 billion). Banks, on the other hand, made more use of the loan facility created on March 12, following the bankruptcy of SVB and Signature Bank. The Bank Term Funding Program was requested to the tune of 53.7 billion against 11.9 billion the previous week.
