Fed to Release Large-Bank Stress-Test Results

The Federal Reserve announced that on Thursday afternoon it will release the results of the latest round of stress tests performed on 19 major U.S. banks. The 19 institutions had submitted in early January comprehensive capital plans describing their strategies over a nine-month period in the event of a crisis.

The supervisory stress scenario examined whether the banks could withstand a crisis in which unemployment hits 13%, stocks fall 50%, and housing prices drop 21%.

The Fed has released a paper on the stress-tests’ methodology, and templates showing the categories that will be disclosed in the results.
