“Are they going to tell you that? No, they're not. Are they doing that now? Absolutely."

Bove says the Fed’s recent currency swap, coordinated with other central banks, is essentially a way for the Fed to lend money to the ECB, which can then lend that money to European banks.

As for commercial banks, "It is clear that the bankers will never be honest with us," Bove says. "They will never get up and say, we are in trouble, you gotta help us. Therefore, you can't trust what bankers say. I don’t think that will ever change."

If the Fed can be trusted in its latest policy statement, it’s leaving monetary policy unchanged for now.

“Any additional stimulus is greatly going to depend on what happens in Europe or any changes in the U.S. outlook,” John Silvia, chief economist at Wells Fargo Securities, tells Bloomberg.
