August 2008

Financial market conditions remained constrained in August. Tight lending conditions continued to exert pressure on consumers and businesses in the District. Credit card lending remained high, though the pace of growth slowed slightly in the second quarter. Deposit growth at Sixth District banks was marginally positive in the second quarter after three quarters of negative growth. Commercial and industrial lending by Sixth District banks was strong in the second quarter.
