I noticed right off the bat, JP Morgan seems to be at the window every other day for average of 25 billion. I think the discount window is for overnight loans, but come on, if your in line every other day for the same amount, that's more like a revolving line of credit. 

What would be interesting to see, is how the forgien banks used the money they received from the fed. I know they dont publish "positions" of each bank at the end of the quarter, but I would be very curious to know that they were all betting the same direction and the same markets. As if the money leant by the fed, had strings attached, inline with the feds agenda, like letting Lehman fail.

Thanks Tyler....

A link to the FED's primer on their discount window scam, ahh sorry, their Payment Risk System.


Wanted to brush up on the regulations before digesting where discount window loans for $15,760,004,161,955 are backed by "performing or investment grade assets" (really?) in exchange for digital dinero.

This is just from March 08 to March 09. 

Tyler... since the FED is private, do we know if these loans were repaid by their maturity dates or something else?

Thanks ZH & Tyler.  The other day you put one out that I used the PDF version which also worked well.

This time I used the attachment in the window. Looks much nicer now. Either way, we now know that we most likely paid the banksters for a lot of crap that is worthless. "I will not monetize" the Benanke. LOL

Pardon my ignoramous, please.

This enquiring mind wants to know why the FED did this. Seriously. Is it because it's the bank for the reserve currency or some other reason?

If China became the reserve currency bank, would it be expected to bail out deadbeats like, say, the USA?

Thank you Tyler for, again, being the man infornt.

MY BIG QUESTION is...great, now we see (in hind sight) what this criminal group did until March 2009.

I WANT TO KNOW what they have done since then and are doing now.

THIS CONGRESS MUST DISOLVE THE FED...no excuses anymore to allow a de-facto private enterprise to run and ruin this Nation.

From Reuters:

"Data the Fed was required by courts to disclose on Thursday showed the U.S. branches of foreign-headquartered financial firms had made extensive use of the central bank's emergency lending discount window during the severe financial crisis that froze financial markets in the fall of 2008."

NOTICE that is says "firms" meaning shells.  HOW did THIS help Americans???????

I think the Fed and it members are traitors to America and more dangerous than ANY terrorist group real or imaginary .

Looks like $2.76 trillion to Dexia -- a banking consortium.  Another $2.56T to Depfa -- a German-Irish bank out of Dublin.  Next highest is Bank of Scotland at $42.8 billion.

That's total borrowing, occurring over many transactions in the first two instances.  Still, that's insane.  Depfa I understand the funding needs.  I wonder what Dexia's deal was.

Good catch cswjr,

The Irish and Scottish banks caught my eye too. We know Ireland is a tax haven for offshore profits is it a stretch that the FED had to keep global corporations' investments in Ireland whole?

I think the answer is yes, if by "investments" you mean derivative contracts to which Irish and Scottish banks were shaky counterparties.

Dexia was threatened when germany's Hypo Real Estate was taken under by the government. That set off a chain of dominos across Europe, especially in Ireland, Iceland and Belgium. 

The scale of the discount window borrowings was dwarfed by the Fed's emergency programs which supplemented the discount window. 

Taken together this was nothing short of a Marshall Plan scale bailout. Conducted outside the system of checks and balances of the US government. But instead of going toward reconstructing a country it all went to patching up failed banks without reforms and without allowing new entrants, ideas and competition to reinvigorate the system. 

These unsurprising revelations only underscore that there really is an international cartel of bankers who bonus themselves just by buying up each other's worthless paper

The Federal Reserve, all its members and associates are....traitors

Criminal charges must be brought to bear or this government is an accomplice. 

 Knowingly or unknowingly, the FED declared a war against the American people, and the safety and security of the solvency of America for the benefit of FOREIGN interests. 

This is an enemy more dangerous than any our citizens have ever faced in any war at any time.

They betrayed us like spys, sold us like slaves, lied to us, and intend to bankrupt the USA, and criple its citizens...just what an real enemy would do.

We put bank robbers in jail, don't we?  These criminals in banks and wall street are robbers, no less. 

Justice must be done.  I call on you Mr President, the watchdog of the nations interests, to do what we the people expect and demand you to do...protect this nation from enemys.

The Morgue's Jamie Diamon wants to let you know how he feels about this. Last week he said we seem to do this every 5 to 7 years.  Anybody counting.  Prediction: He will be a future FED Chairman. That's the reward a crook gets. I could not agree more. When will we put them in jail?

BTW did you notice (while reading the spreadsheet) message popping up EVERY half a second or less (at the time I'm writing this) "SHARING anonymous user XXXXXX opened this spreadsheet", XXXXXX being random anon-user id assigned by google ?

Haven't been able to get past the first page of the spreadsheet yet, but I already see a lot of JPM and Bank of NY.

Let me guess, JPM used the money for Bear Stearns and Lehman mostly... according to them.

A lot of the JPM and BoNY borrowings are for Tri-party repo, to subsequently lend out money to PDCF facility borrowers (named in Borrower 2 column). JPM and BoNY are the only two tri party clearers.

So, is this why the FED claims no knowledge of who got what, when , why and how? They just filtered trillions to a couple crooks like JPM, BNYM, GS and let them funnel it down?  I'm not sure I totally understand this Tri-party repo deal.

SO JPM and BoNY were making a  profit passing the money they were getting at zero %?


Was all this money repaid? Do we know how long it tokk to pay it back?
