Fed Launches Repo Facility To Provide Dollars To Foreign Central Bank

• https://www.zerohedge.com, Tyler Durden

In other words, just a week after the Fed "enhanced" its swap lines with central banks and included a bunch of non G-5 central banks to the list of counterparties, it has found that this is not working - perhaps due to the prohibitive rates on the facility - and is now handing out dollars outright against US denominated securities. We wonder if the central bank uptake will be any higher than the repo facility aimed at US dealers and which is now redundant. Of course, when that fails the Fed can just offer to buy all central bank securities in what even reputable FX strategists now joke is a Fed on full tilt, and intent on buying out all foreign central banks.
