New York Fed says reverse repo inflows hit highest level since start of year

NEW YORK (Reuters) – The quarter end saw substantial inflows into the Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s reverse repo facility on Friday.

The bank reported inflows into a tool designed to set a floor underneath short-term interest rates stood at $664.6 billion, the highest level since $680 billion seen on Jan. 10.

Quarter end frequently brings substantial increases at the reverse repo facility and that cash usually moves out once the new quarter starts.
