Money market funds added $23.6BN in assets last week, pushing the total funds under management back above $6 Trillion – still well off the highs (as some tax-related withdrawals remain lost)…

Finally, bank reserves at The Fed continues to contract, while US equity market cap remains dramatically decoupled…
