A Cluster Of Banks Will Have To Go.

Recommended Posts

Typical all the banks jump on the bandwagon of mbs, not knowing what they are getting into, they are just like sheep. Jumping onto this as they see the original bank who started this profiting from it, combine this with bad asset management its all the same.

The BOE showing that it will bail out smaller banks and larger banks know because they are large would always get bailed out now, knowing this they will take on greater risk. Now they just need to get rid of the cluster of banks that are in trouble to start again.

This can been seen in the US thrift failures, japanese banking problems, scandinavian bank failures, bond and share holders of banks are going to suffer the loses, as US non performing loans rises along side the UK we have been here before and will hit it again.

Advice get out of anything related to bank and building company shares.

They knew what they were doing. They were lending out money under terms and at levels they would never have done with their own deposits. They played the market hoping other suckers would take the hit and they would be left unscathed. It worked for a while.

If you look back the green light for most of this was the 2005 rate cut. After that magically lending multiples rocketed, there were enough eager/deperate purchasers suddenly on the market to make a big push worthwhile - a classic confidence trick, exactly what the rate drop was intended to do. It has of course backfired spectacularly.

The same thing is repeating again we were meant to have a bank crisis in 2005 and as you said they lower the rates to give hope and the crisis is going to be a lot worse. Look at the above crisis i have pointed out and they all have one thing in common.

The BOE has lent out our (tax payers) money at a very good (ie high) interest rate. Nowt wrong with that, is there?!

There is every time a central bank bails out banks then we enter recession however this time we are going to into a depression, there is no choice or enter hyperinflation which this country can not do or get out of.

Banks runs around the world have started this week, investors pile out of bank, save you cash for the depression.

You can't, they will not allow you too, it will be past on to another bank/s and they will profit from it. lets say you have 100k banks goes down the other banks buy your mortgage for 50k, they will never allow you to buy it 50K.

Aah, so a mortgage is an asset to a bank. Am I right in believing that banks have increased the volume and the value of these assets in recent years? In fact, have the banks not "played a blinder"? All the new, and in some cases, old mortgage slaves will be fuelling the banks profits for years to come. I can't see a cluster of banks disappearing at all.

As long as the mortgage debt continues to get paid off, then the banks are quids in.

What happens if a large number of mortgagees default?

the problem now is if there is a large default the government has said it will back it, meaning they will make the currency worthless.

I got asked yesterday about the position of Nr mortgage holders-can they make an offer to 'buy their own debt off' I wonder?

no

Well was reading a post about how the boe was supporting the savers but not supporting the share/bond holders, if they dont support these share holders whats stops other share holders from selling shares in other banks?
