Fed Releases POMO Schedule For Next Two Weeks: Will Buy $9BN In Treasuries And MBS Daily

Now that the Fed's release of POMO is more of a periodic affair than every Friday, moments ago the NY Fed published its latest POMO schedule for both Treasurys and MBS for the next two weeks, covering the period July 28 - August 12.

In line with the recent Fed disclosure that the central bank will purchase about $80 billion in Treasurys monthly, the latest schedule shows an average daily purchase of about $4.5 billion, or $40.2 billion spread over 9 days, identical to the previous two week POMO schedule. For MBS the average daily is nearly identical, at fractionally higher, at $4.7 billion daily, or $51BN spread over 11 days. In total, the Fed will continue to purchase roughly $9 billion in Treasurys and MBS almost every day for the next two weeks.

Here is the latest summary of Treasury POMOS. Of note: the biggest POMO will take place tomorrow and Friday, July 28 and 31, when the Fed will monetize $12.825BN and $8.825BN worth of US debt.
