Treasury Cash Drops By $15 Billion Overnight, At $51.6 Billion; $5 Billion In SFP Bills Roll Off

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Two weeks ago Zero Hedge first presented the comparison of the Treasury cash balance to cash equivalents held by global public companies (a meme that has since propagated in a very dumbed down and unattributed fashion). Here is the update. As of last night, the US Treasury had just $51.3 billion in Federal Resere cash, and furthermore, Tim Geithner let the $5 billion in residual CMBs under the Fed's Supplementary Financing Program mature without rolling. In other words, the Treasury just burned $15 billion, or $20 billion when accounting for the CMB roll off, overnight. At this burn rate there is precisely 3 days or so of cash, although this naturally does not include the bulk payment due to SSTN discussed previously. It is now officially time to panic, although those who so wish, can put their money in not just Apple ($76.2 billion), but GE ($136.4 billion) and Microsoft ($62.4 billion) all of which have more cash than Tim Geithner. Of course, as Gartman put it, in three days everyone will have more cash than the US Treasury. Incidentally, someone may wish to inform the irrelevant data chasers that a far better comparison is that of the US Treasury not to companies that have X cash, but to those that have a $15 billion cash burn per day.

And a history of Treasury cash:

Gold has been on a big run!  Where have you been?  But when will they move together "in a big way"?  The end of August, through fall, and into winter.

I've been stacking physical on the way up, I'm well aware of the "big run" you are talking about.  Seeing as how people are not rushing into gold and silver right now amidst the looming crisis, the prices appear to be rangebound.

I was thinking we'd see SOMETHING as a catalyst for the next leg up this week but it hasn't happened, which leads me to believe the next leg will be down in a big way.

Why "end of August" as the beginning?  Isn't this whole facade worth a few bucks of premium on spot given the consequences we are facing from both a domestic and international front?

Gold and silver not running to new highs all week is foreshadowing bad things for commodities.

...in the short run perhaps.

I HOPE the next leg will be down.  It makes me giddy just imagining how many more shiny maple leaves I can buy for the money!

Harry Reid has said extremists have locked down the White House. 

He says they have vests laden with deficit cutting measures. They are threatening to bring responsibility to our government. 

If they succeed, it's the end of life as we know it he says.

Nancy Pelosi says, if they succeed it's the end of life on planet Earth.

So we won't all turn into stone if the debt ceiling is not raised? 

Tell that to the 100% of senate democrats that voted against raising the debt ceiling INCLUDING HARRY REID & OBAMA (while Bush was in office)

And Mel Watt just screamed his head off about lord knows what.  And now Fwank is on the mic, looking like he just swallowed his tongue.  Name calling, name calling, name calling.  And Shiela Jackson Lee urges the President to invoke a debt raise on his own, which is insane.  She is insane.  Repubs look just as stupid.  They have not brought up one real issue on why the debt is a problem.  The problem is this country has handed over all their wealth to an group of corporate banks.  There is no accountability from either side.  Both ignore the problem:  Monetary and fiscal policy is a sham. 

It is run by a private banking cartel known as the Federal Reserve System.  The "Fed" and its cartel of globalist banking housees seem to be in the clear, while politicians nit pick about the crumbs that are left out of the people of the Unidted States of America's pocket.

One big circus, I tell you.  One big circus.

Oh, and the US government will default.  Yes they will.  And then the BIS, IMF, and World Bank will swoop in and treat the situation like they do with failed 3rd world states.  They will use as collateral the gold on the Fed's books, the debt/GDP of the US, and the other credits and obligations of the Treasurie and Reserve Bank.  Good luck America, for we hardly knew thee.

got a question

since the Treasury has tapped all sorts of Fed retirement accounts, does that mean that once the debt ceiling is lifted, the Treasury will have to 'pay back' what it tapped? And, if so, won't that more quickly eat up whatever debt ceiling room is added?

ok, that's two questions

then what funds have been tapped, if any?

tyler has been posting all sort of articles over the last month or so which I read (possibly wrongly) as tapping retirement accounts at the Federal level.

here's an example

http://www.zerohedge.com/article/quantifying-treasurys-plunder-retiremen...

once the ceiling is raised, will the Treasury have to reverse this plunder, thereby consuming headroom within the new debt limit?

Larry Darrell's picture

Tiny Tim was not tapping the accounts themselves.

He was tapping new money that was supposed to go in to fund said accounts.

So instead of taking X number of dollars from tax receipts and paying into the accounts, he took the X dollars and spent them elsewhere.

Since government parasites are on defined BENEFIT plans instead of defined CONTRIBUTION plans, he does not have to immediately put the money that was supposed to go into the funds into them when he gets his new money.  He can put it in when he feels like it because, well, we are ruled by psycopaths who do what they want when they want.

Of course, this only causes those funds to run out of their promised defined benefits to federal retirees later, but hey, this is Amerikka, and we steal from our children.

Schools of Fish

The point of the Internet is to develop global communities of apparently random leadership, which requires intimate community relationships, beyond the knowledge of the sharks. If you do not know what you are going to do next, neither can the shark. The school looks like easy prey to the shark, but it loses interest quickly with each hunting failure, leaving it only its own algebraic reduction. The key at that point is replacing the divide and conquer mentality of good and evil with understanding that systems result in distributions of behavior within which individuals fall. As you improve social circulation / elasticity in your community, system economic profit increases. The planet requires a return on its initial investment in your surplus.

There will always be plenty of participants choosing to fall behind and become slaves to monetary masters, thinking that money is intrinsically valuable. Floating downstream is much easier than swimming against the current. The shark doesn’t go hungry; it fulfills its purpose. The point of the school is to protect and develop its youth toward self-sufficiency and surplus to open the NPV window, so kids may enter into the corporate contract as equals. Corporations and their ilk cannot think; they can only negotiate, seeking to catch the fish in a barrel before dropping the lure.

The economy is crashing because communities are providing the barrel and all participants are competing to become increasingly stupid, relative to those moving into the future. Because of the Internet, which is transitional by nature, the Corporation may no longer predict future behavior, leaving it to consume increasingly scarce resources with inelastic social processes. In fear, it seeks more and more control, automatically tightening the noose around its own neck. Now, its policy is to hire only the competitors still working for the system, which may only accelerate the result.

So, I’m in a town with “stated” 15% unemployment and all kinds of stimulus coming in, but the employers will not hire the locals and the local property owners will not rent to anyone without a job secured by the Corporation, to lure new participants into the barrel.

Have a nice day.

So what's the possibilities for this soap opera brought to you by the fine people in Dump City:

 

1. They will just print like they always have in the past.

2. Maybe they won't print (initially, that is) to create a panic situation for your enjoyment. Then the sheeple will cry mercy...(read SS, Medicare, welfare and the like)...after having been lead to the slaughter house and given a reprive. Then print.

3. RockeF$&$er, Rotschild and ASSociates use the opportunity to not let a good crisis go to waste and seize it all (Gold?...they did it before, IRA's,land, your first born, wife, husband...whatever) and  make the sheeple bend over (like thay have, so far) for servicing the account...maybe a little bit more war(s) then print.

4. Crash everything, new currency, then print

5. Fail the TBTF's, return to all the principles laid out in the Constitution to the letter. Prosecute accordingly and we are back to the Constitutional Republic originally intended...wait 4 generations, then print.

I'm sure I missed something, but does it matter at this point? Sheeple do what sheeple do...nothing but bending over.

 

So, if there is to be any hope, you all tell the sheeple to stop going to work, right now! Someone might take notice of that.

 Of course, as Gartman put it, in three days everyone will have more cash than the US Treasury.

 

Great!   Now, I can take out a home equity loan, hire some mercs, and invade the small oil producing nation of my choice.    EXXXXCELLENT!!!

Looking at the chart before 2008 they had even less cash and the market marched higher and higher. Wouldn't it be worrysome if this was going up and not down?
