Tracking Fed Policy In One Chart

Tracking Fed Policy In One Chart first appeared on Floating Path.

The Federal Reserve increased its balance sheet by over $39 billion this week, mainly through the purchase of $36 billion in mortgage-backed securities and $9 billion in Treasury bonds. Federal agency debt held was reduced by $4 billion.

Interest rates were little changed, but the weekly averages here tracked by the Fed are for the week ending March 14, so the jump this week following Yellen’s press conference will be reflected in the next release.

M2 increased 0.21% this week and is up 6.20% from a year ago.
