CAPITAL MARKET DEVELOPMENTS
" IN THE UNITED STATES
(Including Review of Sources and Uses of Funds of Selected Financial
Intermediaries During the First Nine Months)
Corporate and municipal bond markets. The volume of Public
offerings of corporate bonds this week will be moderately larger than
last week's substantial total. A $150 million bond offering of General
Motors Acceptance Corporation accounts for nearly three-fourths of the
total. The supply of new municipal bonds, however, is expected to be
about one-third smaller than last week's heavy volume with the biggest
issue on the calendar $100 million in bonds of the State of California.
Also scheduled for offering this week, but not included in the totals
below, is $20 million in bonds of the Japan Development bank.

1/ Federal Reserve estimates based upon published reports of issues
sold and scheduled for offering; corporate rights offerings are
included as of the date subscription rights expire.

Although last week's new corporate offerings were priced to
offer investors yields that were around the highest for issues of
comparable quality in nearly four years, reception for these bonds
was mixed. The reception apparently reflected a belief among investors
that corporate bend yields would rise further in view of the continued
buildup of the calendar. In the municipal market, dealers' advertised
inventories of unsold securities rose as nly two-thirds of last week's
sizable new supply was spoken for. Moreover, yields on seasoned Aaarated municipal bonds advanced 4 basis points to 3.36 per cent--the
highest level since mid-1961.

Private housing starts and permits. Seasonally adjusted
private housing starts, including farm, dipped 3 per cent in October.
While this followed a 2 per cent upward revision for September, the
seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1,402 thousand in October was a
new low for the year and 8 per cent below a year earlier. This
compared with a year-to-year decline of 6 per cent in the first ten
months as a whole.
On a three-month moving average basis, starts were at an
annual rate of 1,426 thousand, down slightly from the third quarter
average and well below the recent peak in the first quarter of 1964.
Government-underwritten starts accounted for 16.7 per cent
of total starts in October„ This was essentially the same share as
in October of each of the previous two years.
Unlike starts, seasonally adjusted residential building
permits advanced 5 per cent in October from the revised (upward)
September rate as permits for single family houses recovered sharply
to a high for this year. Multifamily permits edged downward further,
mainly because of a drop in permits for structures of 2-4 units.
Regionally, the over-all advance in permits was concentrated in the
South and West. Permits in the other two Census regions declined.
Stock market credit. During October total customers' credit
in the stock r°rket went up $81 million to $7.1 billion at the monthend. Virtually all of this increase was attributable to a moderate
$79 million increase in customers' net debit balances (except on U.S.
Government securities). Bank loans to others rose $2 million.
Money borrowed on customers' collateral by member firms of
the New York Stock Exchange fell $96 million during October, but
customers' free credit balances rose $106 million further to their
highest level since April 1961. More detailed information on changes
in stock market credit in recent months is shown in the table on the
following page.
Stock prices. Common stock prices eased slightly on
balance last week in active trading. Standard and Poor's index of
500 stocks, which had reached a record high of 92.60 on November 17,
closed at 92.24 on November 19. Trading volume averaged 8.0 million
shares a day.
Financial intermediaries. During the first nine months of
this year, net inflows of income-yielding claims on depositary type
savings institutions totaled a record $23.2 billion, one-sixth more
than in the comparable period of 1964. All of this improvement in
growth was attributable to the sharp rise in time and savings deposits
at commercial banks ($15.2 billion) following upward adjustments iu
rates paid on such deposits at the start of the year. Expansion in
both savings capital at savings and loan associations and regular

Notes With the exception of bank loan data, figure* are reported to the New York Stock
Exchange by member firms carrying margin accounts. Bank loans to others than brokers and
dealers for purchasing and carrying securities are for weekly reporting member banks. Net
debit balances and customer free credit balances are as of the end of the month; bank loans
and money borrowed are reported for the last Wednesday of the month. Numbers in parenthesis
denote month of year. All figures exclude credits on, or to carry, U.S. Govt, securities.
1/ November 1963 data on customers' net debit balances do not include accounts carried by
a large former member firm in liquidation; most of these accounts have been transferred to
other member firms and are reported in their debit figures from the month received (some in
December, more in January 1964). Debit balance totals for the period from October 1963
through January 1964, therefore, are not completely comparable.

deposits at mutual savings banks was less than that for the corresponding period last year.
Although growth in mortgage holdings of savings and loan
association during the first nine months ($6.9 billion) was oneseventh less than in the corresponding period last year, the falloff was not as great as for savings capital. Consequently, these
associations increased their borrowings, primarily from the Federal
Home Loan Banks, ten times as much as last year's modest amount and
reduced their holdings of cash and Governments combined by about
twice the amount of last year's reduction.
At mutual savings banks, expansion in mortgage holdings
was also not cut back as much as the reduced inflow of regular
deposits. Net mortgage acquisition amounted to $3.0 billion--off
five per cent from such acquisition in the comparable period of
1964. However, holdings of cash and U.S. Government.securities
were reduced moderately in contrast to a $0.2 billion increase last
year. Holdings of corporate and miscellaneous securities, on the
other hand, went up somewhat more than in the January-September
period last year.
Life insurance companies. Assets of life insurance
companies —excluding valuation adjustments—totaled a record $6.1
billion during the first nine months this year, 12 per cent more tha
over the similar period last year. Holdings of business securities
rose $2.5 billion, nearly two-fifths more than last year. Most of
this increased growth, however, took place in holdings of commercial
and finance company paper which rose $0.5 billion during the period
against virtually no change last year; holdings of long-term bonds
and stock increased $2.0 billion--one sixth more than last year.
Net acquisitions of mortgages amounted to $3.7 billion, one-tenth
more than in the same period of 1964. Partly offsetting the increased expansion in holding of the foregoing assets were larger
reductions in holdings of both cash and Governments combined and
of municipal- securities.
More detailed information concerning recent capital
market developments is presented in the attached exhibits.

1/ Total starts are Census estimates Including faro for both penalt-is suing and non-lssulng areas. A
Swelling unit Is started when excavation begins 1 all units In an apartment structure are considered
started at that tlms. IRA and VA starts are units started under commitment a by these agencies to insure
or guarantee the mortgages. As reported by iHA and VA# a unit is started when a field office receives
the first compliance Inspection report, which is made before footings are poured in some cases but
normally after the foundations have been completed. Capehart ndlitaiy housing units are excluded.
Other starts are derived as a residual, although total and IHA and VA starts are not strictly comparable
in concept or timing; other starts include both units financed by conventional mortgagee and units
without mortgages.
2/ ftailding permits before January 1963 are Census estimates fer about 10,000 areas identified as
having a leoal building permit system in 1959. Estimates beginning January 1663, are fcr approximately
12.000, or all knewn, permit-issuing places. Unlike starts, seasonally adjusted building permits
reflect direct adjustment fer differences in the nuntoer ef working days per month, as well as other
differences in timing sal coverage*

Tote: For retrospective data on aggregate foreign corporate and government security
offerings in the United States see Exhibits I and J. There is no simple relationship
between the data shown in the Exhibit and that shown in Exhibits I and J because, the
latter includes privately placed securities in the period in which funds are actually
takendown but only in the amount of takedown while the placements shown in this exhibit are included when reported, frequently with little or no information concerning- timing of takedowns. Full or partial takedowns may take place both prior
and subsequent to the date a placement is reported.
