Upcoming POMO Actions: Today (In Process) And Monday
For all those who are wondering why the market may have caught a vapor bid today, here is your answer: the Fed is currently (as of 10:15 Eastern) conducting an auction for Bonds maturing between 2013-2014, which if Morgan Stanley is correct will inject roughly $2.5 billion in new market liquidity. Lever it up 15x and you get some decent market moving potential. And as the FRBNY discloses, the next auction will be on September 13, when the Fed will focus on the 7-10 Year "belly" of the curve. Today's POMO result will be announced at 11:00am: expect no stock weakness immediately following the reallocation of capital from USTs to stocks via the PDs.
