    Upended markets after bank collapses/deposit runs  

    The IG new issuance market has been upended along with the broader markets in the wake of SVB’s collapse (and subsequently Signature Bank) - and a swift reversal from the initial indications by the Fed/Treasury/FDIC to now backstop of all deposits via the newly created Bank Term Funding Program last night. With the 2y yield 95bps lower from the 5% level reached last week, and 53bps lower just today, USTs have been caught in the conflagration and aftermath of the very basic bank run on deposits.    


    Needless to say, IG corporate spreads are wider, with Friday’s close (before the ultimate collapse of SVB) seeing spreads 12bps wider to 137bps, week over week, while high yield spreads wider by 56bps to 461bps, according to the ICE BofA Masters indexes.


    As for the potential for IG new supply this week, the prognostications are up in the air, with a standard $25bn placeholder - a guess dependent on the resumption of some normalization in the markets. Last week, a total of $39.28bn priced (ex-SSA), topping expectations of around $35bn. Month to date for March currently stands at $55.27bn.
