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 14 - July 27.

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; for MBS the average daily is nearly identical, at $4.6 billion daily, or $46BN spread over 10 days.

Here is the latest summary of Treasury POMOS. Of note: the biggest POMOs will take place on July 14 and July 24, when the Fed will monetize $12.825BN and $8.825BN worth of US debt.

The Agency MBS can be found at the following link.

The visual summary of all TSY/MBS POMO since the start of QE Unlimited on March 13 is shown below. Since then, a total of $2.82 trillion in TSY and MBS have been purchased by the Fed in the open market.
