An unofficial troubled bank list similar to what the FED generates but is not public has been posted by the fine folks over at the Bank Implode-O-Meter

Here is the Data in graph form, based on the tables generated by Bank Implode-O-Meter. Note that there are 3 categories on the chart

Banks In Red: Banks with a Texas Ratio of 100 or greater

Banks In Yellow: Banks with a Texas Ratio between 80-100

Banks In Green: Banks with a Texas Ration less then 80.

Note that Bank Implode-O-Meter used the Level 1 Equity ratio as a measure of distress and that there is minimal difference between the 2 measures in terms of this simple chart.

What is the Texas Ratio?
