"Flip That Bond" Continues: Primary Dealers Offload 26% Of Just Acquired 3 Year Auction Back To Fed
In today's episode of "Flip That Bond", the Primary Dealers succeeded in flipping a whopping 26% of the just auctioned off 1% of 1/25/2014 (912828PQ7) back to the Fed. Today's POMO has closed with $7.720 billion in bonds maturing between 2013 and 2014 monetized by Sack Frost, of which, and this should come as no surprise to anyone, the bond most put back to the FRBNY, to the tune of $3.7 billion or 48% of all, was PQ7. Keep in mind that the PD take down in this bond was $14.2 billion. Just two weeks later the Primary Dealers have reduced their positions in this most recent auction by 26%. In other news, there is no monetization. And Tim Jeethner pays his taxes.
