Fed's QE Is Over (Until It Comes Back...)

Authored by Lance Roberts via,

The Fed's QE is officially over. As we noted in our recent Daily Market Commentary (subscribe for a pre-market email):

"The Fed will officially end the latest round of QE on Wednesday. The schedule below shows that on March 9th, the Fed will make its last QE purchase of about $4 billion of shorter-term Treasury notes. Since March 2020, the Fed's balance sheet has risen by nearly $5 trillion due to QE. The Fed will still purchase bonds but only to offset maturing bonds and keep its balance sheet stable. Given the new monetary policy regime, we must focus beyond the Russian conflict. This entails better risk management as a key source of liquidity is now officially ending."
