The Primary Dealers deployed the cash they had been sitting on last week to ignite a stampede when the Fed announced it would taper. The Fix (or is it Fex) was in. Fortunately, we saw this coming.
More cash came last week and is coming in the Christmas week in the form of big paydowns of outstanding T-bills that are putting a total of $32 billion back into investor accounts. Along with the Fed’s Treasury purchases and possibly left over cash from the big MBS purchase settlement round that ended on December 19, there will be plenty of cash to absorb the new supply of notes that settle New Years Eve. Then it gets even “better” in January.
