After eroding significantly in August and September, loan market technical conditions bounced back a bit in October as visible inflows edged net new loan supply by $1.87 billion: $5.73 billion versus $3.86 billion.
As this chart shows, however, October’s demand surplus, the first since June, hardly put a dent in the recent run of deficits. Indeed, in September loan supply exceeded visible inflows by $13.9 billion, the largest gap since November 2007. And in the year-to-October, the cumulative deficit totals $34.5 billion.
