- Federal Reserve Balance Sheet
In May, the New York Fed agreed to sell another collateralized debt obligation (CDO) from the Maiden Lane III portfolio. The securities were auctioned off, and the details will be reflected in the next quarterly report scheduled for July 16, 2012. Combined with an asset sale in April, the outstanding loan balance for Maiden Lane III now stands at just under $3 billion, and the portfolio value remains just over $15 billion. During the last week of May, the outstanding balance of dollar liquidity swaps rose for the first time since March, but the balance still remains close to its lowest point since last December. The Treasury purchase schedule for June was released, again with slightly more purchases planned than sales.
