Bank Stress Test Results LEAKED!!!


turnerradionetwork.blogspot.com

1) Of the top nineteen banks in the nation, sixteen are already technically insolvent.

2) Bank of America`s total credit exposure to derivatives was 179 percent of its risk-based capital; Citibank`s was 278 percent; JPMorgan Chase`s, 382 percent; and HSBC America`s, 550 percent. It gets even worse: Goldman Sachs began reporting as a commercial bank, revealing an alarming total credit exposure of 1,056 percent, or more than ten times its capital!

My view on this is that we have reached the end of the Bear Trap, its all going down hill from here. Increased Unemployment and More Foreclosures will force many of the top banks into bankruptcy. Added that GM's Bankruptcy is still on the table and the Commercial market is just starting to implode.

Folks, if you havent prepared yourselves yet for a few really tough months without commerce, then NOW is your last chance.

Call my overly skeptic if you must, but I get a feeling these reports are being purposely leaked for some reason. Could it be that the banks in question maybe want more bailout money? Ultimately, someone somewhere is gaining a lot of resources, power, influence, you name it, as a result of this crisis. It would be in their best interest for these reports to be accidentally leaked.

Kind regards, M.

I had a same idea of it on my mind. leaks... someone wanted to make it happen. and for sure for some purpose (to inform us would be the last possible reason I can imagine).

let's wait and see. until they are playing with our money we still have time to prepare for the worst to come.

Tried looking it up on Wikileaks but seems Wikileaks is down .I wonder if this has anything to do with this story.

If true that this is not good at all, since we, the american people, have throw loads of our money into these banks and they are still insolvent. I would have not been overly concerned if we had not "invested" in these failing banks with trillions of our tax dollars. I hope for the sake of our own investment that these leaks are false but I can't help to think they are the real deal.

Until we get more proof I will be skeptic but if these are what they claim our multi trillion dollar "invest" is gone.

It is very scary stuff indeed. I think this leak has reached a lot of peoplel and the market is showing the impact of it today. I was really surprised when I woke up and saw the market down this much.

I watch the asian markets pretty close and when the closed the monday session yesterday it was down a bit but not that much. I think this leak is having a direct impact today. Will watch it close and see what happens at closing today.

Also watching the FED to see if they do the same crap when the market starts to go down by buying a bunch of treasury bonds to try and falsely try to prop it back up. They have bought billions of these and can bring a negative market back up quick. They are just delaying the outcome and that is just stupid on their part. It just gives a lot of false hope to a lot of people.

My money is safely stashed away in a stable value fund until this is all over. I really follow market-ticker.denninger.net... religiously and he has been dead on. I moved my money last year in April and that has really saved me a ton of my money.

Now I am just rambling on sorry about that!

I went the website linked, hoping to find their original source document.

I could not find anything. I am not saying this is not true since it would answer why bank of america is down 15% today even though it beat analysts expectation.

Something is definitely up, I just would trust this more if I could see a more official document or specific name source, other than a blog ( regardless of the blogs past history of truth).

Of course Treasury is now saying that they don't have the list yet but, then, why did the Federal Reserve on 4/10/09 tell Goldman, Citigroup, etc. to keep quiet on the results? This just stinks and I call:

There are precious little in the way of surprises in these leaked results.

Our 'major' banks are propped up on make-believe assets..., all boiled down to fictional funds they 'anticipated' as collateral for make believe bets, which ironically WE HAVE TO PAY FOR.

FRACTIONAL RESERVE LENDING IS THE ROOT OF THIS PROBLEM.

That..., and rich boy gambling thrills....

Banks should be limited to compensation for services, NOT gambling skills.

So begins the downfall of our way of life.
For those who doubted my doom and gloom attitude, I can only say that you have to get ready!

Edit: If the media reports this there is going to be a run on the banks.

Everyone should relax, until real evidence of what this website says is shown.

Its like a bi-polar roller coaster with some of you.

I mean i have a feeling what is listed is true just want to see REAL PROOF before i make any plans in relation to this.

I'm sure it's for someone, but I doubt for the banks to get any more bailout money.

Risk-Based capital (which is what this story is about, their overexposures on their risk-based capital) is really the guidelines for the insurers and what their positions should be based on that.

So really, the one's to benefit from this being "leaked" prematurely would be your AIG's et al.

I am a very optimistic person, but I agree with you 100% If people think this recession/depression has hit bottom, you are very wrong! Just be watchful. No ones job seems to be safe anymore. I am one of those people that thought I had a safe job as the company I worked for had never laid anyone off in the 85 years they have been around. Now, I am without a job. They say all of us that have been laid off will be back by sept. 1st we will see though.

Keep your eyes open please.

Ok I am usually one to jump all over the banks for some of the BS they pull and for this mess they helped create, but there is no originating source for the information. Plus it is from a site called....the Turner show. That would not be HAL Turner would it? If it is then I will automatically say it is BS. That guy is so full of it. He has made up and created so many lies to further his career.

en.wikipedia.org...

The man is a white supremacist as well..and as no surprise has been good friend with....that's rights you may have guessed it Sean Hannity.

Here's a article you must read. It is linked on the website as well.

I have to side with the report because a while back a report came out where the feds wanted the banks to keep mum on the results.

Would you tell the banks to keep mum on the reports if they were full of good news?

I think that as the economy worsens, more people get unemployed, the banks will feel more pain. Just hard to pay your debts when you aren't making as much as you use to.

Here is when you will know that the banks are insolvent.


Door's will be closed.


You will not have access to your account, via bank, online, debit card, etc...


You'll hear it on the news.


You'll get a canned letter within a few days.

Otherwise, don't worry about it because the banks make the rules, if you don't like the banks rules invest in tangible things.

Land, food, live stock, tools, trading items, applicable knowledge not this horse crap they teach in most of our educational systems, real hands on.


It must be very stressful to put all your power via money into banks, stocks, and other worthless paper that others control.

Life is difficult enough, but putting your trust in a system that has proven itself corrupt and unsustainable, come on wake up.

The fed has already been caught lying about it so I would not discount the report yet. The numbers look about right to me. The government will go to great lengths to cover this up. The Market has already found out though

Wow, what a ponzi scam. Makes ya want to smash something .. or someone. This idea of shifting bad debt/investments from the bankers to the tax payers really sucks. It's blatant robbery. Armed robbery even (if the IRS has to come knocking on your door with guns to collect your bailout contributions). I'm sure darn glad I don't work any longer and have to pay income taxes. Damned if I'm going to be taking it up the you know what to bailout the wealthy and the bankers and all their bad investments.

Fight back people, I mean it. Stop playing along! These tea parties are NOT going to accomplish or change a dang thing. Kick the PTB where they will FEEL it.

Ya wanna make yourself heard? STOP SPENDING! I mean it. Don't spend a damn dime on anything that you don't absolutely need. Well actually, take your extra dimes and convert them to something other than funny (a.k.a. fiat) money. Buy some jewels, valuable metals, food reserves, foreign currency (even Canadian dollars are better than tanking US dollars).

By not participating in this ponzi economy, you will be able to bring DA MAN to his/her knees. Seriously, think twice before spending every dime you earn. This will be the equivalent of going on strike! Consumers on strike!

Man, you just know there will be more bailouts, and THAT is just so wrong .. so very very wrong to make the tax payers cough up the cash that the bankers lost. The rich invest .. and now when their investments begin to tank, they want the tax payers to bear their looses? NO WAY MAN! Walking around carrying a sign is what they HOPE you do, but what you really need to do is to GO ON STRIKE .. a CONSUMER STRIKE .. refuse to play their game!

This is outrageous. Tell all your family and friends to go on strike too. Spread the word. Frighten everyone if you have to, tell them they better save every dime they have now for when they are out of work this summer or fall. This is just too much. Blatant robbery, that's what this is. If you don't fight back now, it will be too late later.
