There is always money in the Fed: Repurchase agreements Foreign Official 3/16 $0. Repurchase agreements Foreign Official 3/23 $60 Billion. I wonder what Foreign Official needed $60 billion so quickly?...


I am willing to bet this is why the Central Bank Liquidity swaps did not jump bigly this week--they went here instead?

Also, with Primary Credit dropping by $40 billion and the Bank Term Funding Program (BTFP) jumping about the same, seems they are moving the lending there for the 1 year loan term vs shorter term Primary Credit?

More details on all of this here:

This is not a 'bailout'! $344.307 Billion (up +$36.244 Billion or +11.77% in a week): A review of the tools the Fed is leveraging to provide banks liquidity while we get rate hikes: Discount Window, Central Bank Liquidity Swaps, Bank Term Funding Program (BTFP), & โ€œOther credit extensionsโ€

EDIT: typo in headline, the dates should be 3/15 and 3/22. The reports are as of 3/16 and 3/23.
