The New York Fed undertakes small value open market transactions for the purpose of testing operational readiness to implement existing and potential policy directives from the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC). The FOMC authorizes the New York Fed's Open Market Trading Desk (the Desk) to conduct these exercises to test its operational readiness in the Authorization for Domestic Open Market Operations and Authorization for Foreign Currency Operations.
In connection with these authorizations, the Desk intends to conduct a small value forward-settling overnight repo operation with Primary Dealers and Standing Repo Facility counterparties. The operation will be conducted via FedTrade from 10:30 AM ET to 10:45 AM ET on Monday, April 11, 2022. All counterparties will be limited to one $1 million proposition per tranche during the operation. The operation details are as follows below:
