  • Federal Reserve Balance Sheet
  • Over the course of February, the New York Fed sold the remaining securities held in the Maiden Lane II portfolio. During the month, securities with a current face value of $12.2 billion were distributed to Goldman Sachs and Credit Suisse through a competitive auction. The sales will result in the full repayment of the $19.5 billion loan extended by the New York Fed and generate a net gain for the benefit of the public of approximately $2.8 billion.

    The tentative schedule for outright Treasury operations for the month of March was released at the end of February, with an announced schedule of $44 billion of purchases and $43 billion of sales. Also, it was announced at the end of the month that the New York Fed would conduct another series of small-scale reverse repo operations using all types of available collateral. The operations were scheduled to ensure that the new set of counterparties—8 banks and 2 new primary dealers—was properly set up to process the transactions. Outstanding balances on the central bank dollar liquidity swaps remained fairly constant over the month, hovering near $110 billion.
