Repurchase Agreement(Repo)/World Economic Charts
Demand for the Fed’s repo financing robust again since 2008. It will probably involve increasing bank reserves(via Treasury securities purchases) and a standby repo facility.
The first thing we need to know is why did that happen?
According to The Washington Post, it’s probable that a big swath of new Treasury debt settled into the marketplace, landing on dealer’s balance sheets just as cash was being sucked out by quarterly tax payments companies need to send to the government.
Therefore, in an overnight system repurchase agreement, the Fed lent cash to primary dealers against Treasury securities or other collateral. As a result, it causes the FED balance sheet increasing last week.
The figure shows the FED balance sheet. The FED balance sheet increase due to QE1, QE2, and QE since 2008. The Fed began quantitative tightening and retiring some debt on the balance sheet since 2018. However, the FED balance sheet increased from last week because of the repurchase agreement.
Quantitative Easing: A monetary policy in order to inject liquidity directly into the economy.
On the other hand, in the Fed September meeting, the Fed considers introducing a new tool, called a standing overnight repo facility, which would amount to a standing offer to lend a certain amount of cash to repo borrowers every day.
