Fed Balance Sheet
Fri, 22 Mar 2019 00:36:21 GMT
The Fed's balance sheet is a weekly report presenting a consolidated balance sheet for all 12 Reserve Banks that lists factors supplying reserves into the banking system and factors absorbing reserves from the system. The report is officially named Factors Affecting Reserve Balances, otherwise known as the "H.4.1" report.

In September 2017, the Fed announced a program of quantitative tightening to reduce its balance sheet through the gradual reduction of both its Treasury and mortgage-backed security holdings. The monthly reductions, executed by reinvesting a decreasing amount of maturing securities, began in October 2017 and gradually increased in size before hitting a plateau in October 2018 at $30 billion per month for Treasuries and $20 billion per month for MBS. These levels of monthly reduction were then extended into future months of 2019 though the Fed indicated in January that it would likely bring the program to a close by the end of the year.

Money Supply
Thu, 21 Mar 2019 21:11:23 GMT
The monetary aggregates are alternative measures of the money supply by degree of liquidity. Changes in the monetary aggregates indicate the thrust of monetary policy as well as the outlook for economic activity and inflationary pressures. Money supply is in terms of two componentsM1 and M2 (the Fed formerly produced a version called M3 but no longer does so). M1 and M2 are progressively more inclusive measures of money: M1 is included in M2. M1, the more narrowly defined measure, consists of the most liquid forms of money, namely currency and checkable deposits. The non-M1 components of M2 are primarily household holdings of savings deposits, small time deposits, and retail money market mutual funds.

10-Yr TIPS Auction
Thu, 21 Mar 2019 19:26:28 GMT
The Treasury sells Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities, also known as TIPS, at regularly scheduled auctions. Competitive bids at these single-price auctions determine the interest rate paid on each issue, which remains fixed. Note the interest rate cannot be negative with the Treasury setting a minimum of 0.125 percent. A group of securities dealers, known as primary dealers, are authorized and obligated to submit competitive tenders at Treasury auctions. Dealers can hold the TIPS, resell them to their clients or trade them with other securities firms. Typically, the New York Fed approves about 20 securities firms to be primary dealers but that number dropped sharply during the 2008 financial crisis as some were merged into other firms or went bankrupt. The Fed has been rebuilding that number regularly and the latest list can be found here. The Treasury announces the amount, date and time of the 10-year TIPS auction six times a year: January, March, May, July, September and November. New issues of 10-year TIPS are usually announced at the beginning of January and July. The March, May, September and November announcement calls for a reopening of the previously issued security. In each of the aforementioned months, 10-year TIPS are usually auctioned in the next to the last Thursday of the month. They are issued (settled) on the last day of the month; if it falls on a weekend or holiday, then they are issued on the next business day.
