The New York Fed undertakes certain small value open market transactions from time to time for the purpose of testing operational readiness to implement existing and potential policy directives from the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC). The FOMC authorizes the New York Fed’s Open Market Trading Desk (the Desk) to conduct these exercises to test its operational readiness in the Authorization for Domestic Open Market Operations and Authorization for Foreign Currency Operations.

In connection with these authorizations, the Desk intends to conduct two small value agency MBS sales operations, which will occur on Tuesday, June 22, 2021 and Thursday, June 24, 2021, beginning around 2:00 PM ET and ending at 2:30 PM ET. The total current face value of sales across the two operations will not exceed $180 million.

Concurrent with this announcement, the Desk has published an operating schedule, detailing the date, time, operation type, securities, and maximum sale amount for each operation.  Announcements and results will be posted on the New York Fed’s website at the start and following the completion of each operation, respectively.
