Reminder: Same Day ACH balancing update

As a reminder, the Fed issued a Same-Day Balancing update earlier this month in response to balancing issues financial institutions were having as a result of Same Day ACH Phase 1. Future-dated items have been removed from the noon file, which means the only time financial institutions will receive a noon file is if they have Same Day transactions. No changes were made to the 4:00 p.m. file.

The value of unique passwords: Because it’s cybersecurity awareness month

By Dan Seas, Information Security Engineer

As unfortunate as it was, the recent Yahoo! breach came in time to remind us of the importance of unique passwords. And, since it’s cybersecurity awareness month, let’s take a minute to explain why. No, it’s not because we want to see how many passwords you can remember; it’s because we all want to avoid identity theft/fraud. READ MORE +

MARKET COMMENTARY
for the month of
October 2016
As the old adage goes, there are two sides to everything. When it comes to today’s economy, that sentiment could not be more evident. For the sake of simplicity, the two sides can be divided into those who believe that the glass is half full and those who see it at half empty. At the moment, very few believe that the economy’s glass has run dry or that it is overflowing. But a slight difference from the midpoint matters. A half- full perception would spur the Fed to raise interest sooner rather than later, encourage companies to step up hiring, and consumers to keep their wallets open. Conversely, a half-empty perception would likely produce an alternate scenario. The Fed would be more inclined to keep rates at their rock-bottom levels, businesses in a lock-down mode and consumers to pull back on spending while saving more for a rainy day. So which is the more prevalent view at the present time? Within the Federal Reserve, the half-empty crowd still dominates, but sentiment is steadily shifting to the half-full position. At its September policy meeting, a relatively slim majority of Fed officials voted to keep the benchmark short-term rate unchanged for a while longer, fearing the economy is not ready to absorb an increase. Still, three out of the 10 voting members – an unusually large number of dissenters – wanted to pull the rate trigger immediately. This halffull group should gain more adherents before the end of the year if the economy stays on its improving path. READ MORE +
