Silicon Valley Bank’s recent troubles have highlighted the risks posed by exposure to mortgage-backed securities. The bank purchased over $80 billion of these securities with deposits, but as interest rates rose, the value of the securities plummeted. The bank recently announced it had sold $21 billion of its Available For Sale securities at a $1.8 billion loss, sparking a wider selloff of banking stocks.

The failure of Silicon Valley Bank could impact the US Federal Reserve’s ability to raise interest rates and withdraw stimulus measures. The failure of a major bank could cause the Fed to rethink its policy, potentially preventing a recession. However, other experts warn that the failure of the bank could have broader implications for the US economy, with potential knock-on effects for businesses and entrepreneurs.

The Japanese yen is expected to continue to depreciate against the US dollar in the coming months. This is due to the expectation of continued divergence in monetary policy between the Bank of Japan and the US Federal Reserve.

Oil prices remain largely unchanged, with concerns over interest rate hikes dampening sentiment. The Federal Reserve is expected to raise interest rates, which could reduce demand for oil and lower prices. Despite this, prices remain supported by ongoing supply cuts by OPEC and its allies.

The upcoming week is expected to be critical for economic data, with a number of key reports scheduled for release. These include CPI, retail sales, industrial production, and housing starts. Analysts will be closely watching these figures to assess the health of the economy and to gauge the likelihood of a recession. The Federal Reserve’s rate decision on March 15 will also be closely watched, with expectations of further rate hikes.

Short-term US Treasurys climbed to new milestones after Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell said that the central bank would likely raise interest rates higher than previously expected and was ready to accelerate the pace of rate increases if necessary.

The yield on the two-year Treasury note had settled at 5.011%, up from 4.892% Monday, and marked its first close above 5% since June 2007.

Traders’ immediate focus is the central bank’s next rate-setting meeting, which wraps up two weeks from Wednesday.
