Fed Starts Taking It Back – WSE Pro

The Fed withdrew part of Monday’s massive $10.75 billion add by issuing $8 billion in two day repos, and doing a permanent TIPs purchase for $449 million, against $14.75 billion in expirations. The 5 day net reversed to a drain of $5.26 billion. There are no repos rolling over tomorrow. This week’s Treasury refunding will include a short term $12 billion paydown, but that excess will be absorbed within two weeks with big increases in the size of the bill auctions, particularly the 4 week bills. The Treasury will remain a net borrower until mid December. Click here to download complete report in pdf format (Professional Edition Subscribers).

I’ve been publishing The Wall Street Examiner and its predecessor since October 2000. I also provide analysis and charts for David Stockman's Contra Corner which I developed for Mr. Stockman. I’ve had a wide variety of finance related jobs in the past 44 years, including a stint on Wall Street in both analytical and sales capacities. Prior to starting the Wall Street Examiner I worked as a commercial real estate appraiser in Florida for 15 years. I also worked in the residential mortgage and real estate businesses in parts of the 1970s and 80s. I have been charting stocks and markets and doing analytical work since I was a teenager. My perspective is not of the Ivory Tower. It is from having my boots on the ground and in the trenches of the industries that I analyze and write about today.
