Treasury Securities Operational Details

The New York Fed is authorized by the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) to buy and sell Treasury securities for the System Open Market Account (SOMA) to the extent necessary to carry out directives adopted by the FOMC. These operations are conducted in the secondary market for Treasury securities.

Based on the May 1, 2024 operating policy statement, should principal payments on agency MBS exceed the $35 billion monthly redemption cap, the excess will be reinvested into Treasury securities through secondary market purchases. In addition, based on the October 14, 2022 operating policy statement, the Desk conducts small value purchases and sales of Treasury securities under its normal process for maintaining operational readiness. Details are outlined in a recent operating policy statement and FAQs.
