Fed awards $25.53bn reverse repos

NEW YORK: The Federal Reserve on Thursday awarded $25.53 billion of one-day, fixed-rate reverse repurchase agreements to 23 bidders at an interest rate of 0.25 percent, the New York Fed said on its website.

On Wednesday, the Fed allotted $31.43 billion in one-day reverse repos to 25 bidders, including Wall Street dealers, money market mutual funds and mortgage finance agencies, also at an interest rate of 0.25 percent.

The reverse repurchase agreement program is seen as a critical policy tool for the US central bank to drain money from the financial system in an effort to achieve its interest-rate objectives.
