Dollar slumps, Fed bail out as SVB collapse

Last week, the SVB collapsed, and this led to dollar deflation. Now, analysts expect that the Federal Reserve will decrease the interest rate after the authorities step in to limit the collapse’s effect on investors. The US government is looking for means by which customers will be able to have access to their deposits without any loss. The Fed is introducing new measures to provide loans to the people affected by the bank’s collapse.

The US Government will refund the depositors of the SBNY at no loss to the taxpayers. And the interest rate by the Fed will no longer increase this month to make the funding available.

The USDC, the largest stake coin, is also unstable because some of its portions were in an SVB account with no insurance. This decline supported Bitcoins recovery, which gained close to 8%. Ethereum has also risen to almost 10%, and it continues to grow high.

Why did the SVB collapse cause so much turmoil in the markets?

After Washington Mutual Bank’s collapse in 2008, the fall of the SVB was classified as the worse banking failure on the 10th of March, 2023. One of the reasons why the SVB fell is because it allows uninsured deposits, and it might make it difficult for the bank to be rescued from lawsuits and the rest. This will lead to a financial crisis in the coming weeks. This has also led them to start selling their bonds at lower rates.

SVB can only get back to running only if bought by an organisation of some sort. But all deposits will be covered and also refunded, but some unsecured creditors may not be protected. This leads to the belief that the US, UK, and Australian rates will rise before stabilising.
