On The Verge Of A Banking Industry Apocalypse?

•, by Michael

This banking crisis was supposed to be "over" after Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank collapsed.  It wasn't.  Then it was supposed to be "over" after First Republic collapsed.  It wasn't.  By now, most of you already know about what has been happening to PacWest, Western Alliance, First Horizon and countless other regional bank stocks.  In all my years, I have never seen banking stocks fall so quickly.  If this avalanche continues to pick up momentum, pretty soon we will have to stop talking about a "banking industry crisis" and start talking about a "banking industry apocalypse".

Ironically, I think that CNN has actually summarized the current state of affairs better than anyone else…

A summary of where things stand in the banking crisis:

The Fed: "Banks are fine."

The Treasury: "Banks are fine."

The banks: "We're fine."

Wall Street: "Everybody sell, the banks are on fire!"
