Exploring the Causes and Implications of the Recent Regional Bank Failure

The Federal Reserve Chairman, Jerome Powell, delivered a speech on Capitol Hill in which he stated that the Fed is willing to accelerate rate hikes if inflation and employment data support it. The most recent jobs report showed a 311,000 increase in payrolls, exceeding expectations of 225,000, which opened up the possibility of a 0.5% rate increase at the upcoming Fed meeting on March 22.

Meanwhile, Silicon Valley Bank is in a complex situation having suffered a deposit loss of $5 billion.
