Almost four months into its $60 billion-a-month Treasury bill-buying system, the Federal Reserve is fighting a notion among some investors that its asset acquisitions are comparable to the main bank’s postcrisis quantitative program that is easing.
Those investors’ views may cause a communications frustration for the Fed into the coming months, as soon as the main bank is likely to start slowing the rate of the acquisitions since it develops bank system reserves straight back as much as an “ample” level.
The Fed’s present acquisitions of short-term Treasury bills vary from the postcrisis QE programs, by which the Fed bought longer-term Treasurys and mortgage-backed securities in order to reduce long-term borrowing expenses and encourage investing. This time around, the Fed’s purchases comprise just of T-bills maturing within one or less and are intended to restore liquidity after a shortage of cash in mid-September 2019 led to a spike in short-term borrowing rates year.
