Unrealized losses on available–for–sale and held-to-maturity securities totaled $620 billion in the fourth quarter
- Unrealized losses on available–for–sale and held-to-maturity securities totaled $620 billion in the fourth quarter
- The combination of a high level of longer-term asset maturities and a moderate decline in total deposits underscored the risk that these unrealized losses could become actual losses should banks need to sell securities to meet liquidity needs.

Held-to-Maturity is the scary thing Gruenberg just talked to congress about...
Amending a previously submitted Call Report to retroactively report a debt security in another category when such transfer was not documented with evidence supporting the actual date of transfer is inappropriate.
Institutions are responsible for ensuring that Call Reports are accurate when initially filed for a quarterly reporting period.
Is someone trying to manipulate their Held-to-Maturity liabilities? Is this what caused the US President to say the banking crisis is 'not over yet'?
