Bank Stress Tests

Backgrounder at wiki here.

They may test the instrument under, for example, the following stresses: 
What happens if unemployment rate rises to v% in a specific year? 
What happens if equity markets crash by more than w% this year? 
What happens if GDP falls by x% in a given year? 
What happens if interest rates go up by at least y%? 
What if half the instruments in the portfolio terminate their contracts in the fifth year? 
What happens if oil prices rise by z%?

I notice that they don't have one like "What if bank reserve assets increase suddenly by x% in one week?"
