At a time of uncertainty in the banking sector, investors have seen two major US banks — Silicon Valley Bank, a subsidiary of the SVB Financial Group (NASDAQ:SIVB), and Signature Bank (NASDAQ:SBNY) — collapse. In an effort to protect depositors and avert a systemic meltdown, U.S. regulators stepped in to rescue the two banks.
Twitter chief Elon Musk chimed into the conversation and said, “Not far wrong,” affirming that he agrees with Markus.
