Bear Stearns Trash Still in the FED Roach Motel (Graph, Maiden Lane)

On June 26, 2008, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (FRBNY) extended credit to Maiden Lane LLC under the authority of section 13(3) of the Federal Reserve Act.

As the graph indicates most of the securities are still held in Maiden Lane.
