The October 2019 Senior Loan Officer Opinion Survey (SLOOS) on Bank Lending Practices addressed changes in the standards and terms on, and demand for, bank loans to businesses and households over the past three months, which generally corresponds to the third quarter of 2019. Regarding loans to businesses, respondents indicated that, on balance, they left their standards on commercial and industrial (C&I) loans basically unchanged, while demand for C&I loans weakened. Banks also reportedly tightened standards on commercial real estate (CRE) loans, while demand for most categories of CRE loans changed little on balance. For loans to households, banks reportedly left their standards basically unchanged on most categories of residential real estate (RRE) loans, while demand strengthened for most categories of such loans. Meanwhile, banks reported tightening their standards on credit card loans, while demand for most consumer loan categories strengthened.
