    Fed completes 3rd straight repo auction to avoid short-term rate surge

    The New York Federal Reserve Thursday morning completed its third repurchasing operation, or repos, in as many days to stem spikes in crucial overnight funding market for financial institutions. The U.S. central bank carried out $75 billion of repos, with the Street submitting bids for $83.875 billion, sources said, providing liquidity for Wall Street dealers by temporarily buying securities. Earlier this week, a surge in the repurchasing rate, used by hedge funds and banks to fund their trading operations, pushed the fed-funds rate close to the top of its targeted range. The incident has stirred worries that the central bank is at risk of losing its grip over its benchmark interest rate. On Wednesday, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said at a news conference that the central bank is likely to execute similar auctions and said he doesn't see the recent jump in overnight money-market rates on Monday and Tuesday as a "having implications for the broader economy, or for the economic outlook, nor for the our ability to control rates."

    New York Fed plans repo operation for third straight day

    The New York Fed said it would conduct an overnight repurchasing operation for the third time this week at 8:15 a.m. Eastern on Thursday. The U.S. central bank will offer up to $75 billion of repos, temporarily buying securities from Wall Street dealers to inject liquidity into the system. Earlier this week, a surge in the repurchasing rate, used by hedge funds and banks to fund their trading operations, pushed the fed funds rate above its target range. Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said in a Wednesday press conference that the central bank would stand ready to use its current tools to address pressures in money markets.

    Fed funds rate trades at 5 basis points above target range

    The fed funds rate traded on Tuesday 5 basis points above the upper bound of its target range between 2.00% to 2.25%, according to Federal Reserve data released Wednesday morning. The recent climb in overnight repurchasing rates, used by hedge funds and other leveraged investors to finance their trading operations, has resulted in a knock-on increase in the fed funds rate. Since both are short-term sources of funding, a rise in the overnight repurchasing rate means that borrowers in fed funds have to pay up to attract investors. The fed funds rate pushing above its target range underlines analysts' concerns that the U.S. central bank is having trouble keeping its benchmark interest rate at its desired levels. The Fed launched $75 billion of overnight repos on Wednesday morning, in order to inject liquidity bank into the system and to bring the fed funds rate in line within its preferred range. This is the Fed's second repo operation this week.

    The New York Fed held an overnight repurchasing operation for the second time this week on Wednesday morning. The U.S. central bank carried out the full $75 billion of repos, temporarily buying securities from Wall Street dealers to inject liquidity into the system.

    New York Fed carrying out repo operation to keep fed funds rate in target range

    The New York Federal Reserve bank said it was carrying out up to $75 billion worth of repuchase agreements, or repo, on Tuesday between 9:30 a.m. Eastern to 9:45 a.m. They said the move would help bring back the central bank's benchmark interest rate, or the federal funds rate, back to its target range of between 2% to 2.25%. Market participants have complained this week that a lack of liquidity in funding markets has pushed the fed funds rate above the interest rate on excess reserves, and that the central bank had lost its grip over short-term interest rates. Analysts say the repurchase operations will boost reserves at banks and help ease funding pressures.

    U.S. Treasury yields on pace to see biggest weekly surge in years

    This week could see the biggest U.S. bond-market selloff in several years. Traders may be winding down their bullish positions on long-term government debt after a huge rally in recent months, analysts said, while others highlighted more constructive developments on international trade, geopolitics, and the U.S. economy which may be lowering the risk of recession. The 2-year Treasury note yield (BX:TMUBMUSD02Y)  is on track Friday for its biggest weekly gain since 2009, after rising 24 basis points this week to trade at 1.769%.

    Why negative interest rates are 'seriously dangerous': strategist

    President Trump’s latest Twitter escapade against the Fed calls for negative interest rates to jump-start the slowing economy. But the prospect of using a monetary tool usually reserved for deeply-troubled economies has many strategists on Wall Street seriously worried. Butcher Joseph Asset Management Chief Investment Strategist Nancy Tengler believes the practice of implementing negative interest rates is “seriously dangerous.” The “$16 trillion in negative yielding debt around the globe - I don't understand how you account for it as an investor,” Tengler said in an interview on Yahoo Finance’s The Final Round.

    What the S&P 500’s dividend yield being higher than the 30-year Treasury yield really means

    Bonds in the late 1950s entered a devastating bear market that lasted more than two decades, as bond yields rose by several orders of magnitude — as you can see from the accompanying chart. Many commentators are predicting that this week’s development will presage a similarly devastating bear market for bonds. For insight, I turn to a study into what causes the Treasury yield to be higher or lower than the dividend yield.
