This Week's MMO

  • MMO for January 15, 2018

    We have revised our debt ceiling forecasts, and now expect the drop-dead date to arrive in early March rather than in the second half of that month.  Also, the discussion agenda for the Treasury’s Q1 dealer meetings asked for comments about the possibility of introducing a new bill maturity and/or adding a second bill settlement date each week.
