  • Federal Reserve Balance Sheet
  • The central bank liquidity swaps took effect this week. Only the European Central Bank had an outstanding balance as of May 12 and it was already up to $9.2 billion. Expectations are for the outstanding balances on the swap lines to remain well below the previous peaks seen a little more than a year ago. The swap lines are scheduled to be available through January 2011. Balances in the Commercial Paper Funding Facility have all but rolled off, falling $2.8 billion to just $2 million this week. Also, the special purpose vehicles Maiden Lane II and III repaid a portion of their loans from the New York Fed, following their monthly repayment schedule. The outstanding balances on those loans are now $14.5 billion for Maiden Lane II and $16.2 billion for Maiden Lane III. On the liabilities side, it seems as if the wave of tax receipts has subsided, with the Treasury general account dropping nearly $42 billion this week.
