This Week's MMO

  • MMO for August 19, 2019

    The market will have its hands full with Fed news this week.  The FOMC minutes on Wednesday may include a progress report on the Fed’s internal discussion over the possibility of a standing repo facility.  Chair Powell’s Friday morning speech on monetary policy challenges will probably take a step back from current market turbulence and focus on more conceptual issues, but it’s difficult to disentangle the short- and long-run outlooks completely at present.  Separately, this week’s issue includes a quick note on June 30 holdings of reserve balances at large domestic banks (there’s a new name atop the leaderboard) and our regular monthly money fund repo chartbook.
