The Fed also announced the capital requirements as of Oct. 1, which consist of at least 4.5% in minimum capital, a stress capital buffer of at least 2.5% and where applicable a capital surcharge for global systemically important banks of at least 1%.

Fed extends several emergency lending programs to end of year from Sept. 30The Federal Reserve on Tuesday said its board of governors had decided to extend several emergency loan programs until the end of the year. The programs had been set to expire on Sept. 30. "The three-month extension will facilitate planning by potential facility participants and provide certainty that the facilities will continue to be available to help the economy recover from the COVID-19 pandemic," the Fed said in a statement. Set up to keep credit flowing in the aftermath of the market disruption in March, many of the Fed programs haven't seen a lot of interest in recent weeks. Fed officials argued that this was a healthy sign that credit was available from other sources and that it was important that the lending programs were in place in case that financial conditions deteriorated again.
