Is the share price price of banks now being manipulated?

Is part of the answer to this liquidity problem to issue bonds and bills that have interest rates variable rather than fixed, as is the case with many home loans. In other words, the borrower accepts some of the risk attached to change in economic circumstances?

Hi Professor, could we say instead that this was an accounting issue (portfolio being marked HTM).
