Big Bucks Bank currently holds $20 million in excess reserves. If the Fed increases the rate of interest it pays on reserves held at the Fed, we would expect Big Bucks Bank to:
-use those excess reserves to increase its lending.
-hold more of those excess reserves in its reserve account at the Fed, reducing the amount it is willing to lend.
-move a portion of those excess reserves into its required reserve account.
-not change its lending activity, as excess reserves are not eligible to receive interest paid on reserve accounts.
