The Desk's planned purchase amounts and schedules are shown below. Effective June 11 , 2020, purchase plans are based on the FOMC directive to increase the System Open Market Account (SOMA) holdings of Treasury securities to sustain the smooth functioning of the Treasury market, thereby fostering effective transmission of monetary policy to broader financial conditions. Details are outlined in a recent operating policy statement and FAQs.
Announcements with details on the day's operation will be posted to the Treasury Securities Operations page at the start of each operation; results will be posted there after the close of each operation. In addition, the Desk will publish historical operation results, including information on transaction prices in individual operations, at mid-month for the prior monthly purchase period. Those results will include small value exercises when conducted.
