From RGE Monitor:

  • McCormick: March 20: Surging demand for U.S. Treasuries is causing failures to deliver or receive government debt in the $6.3 trillion a day market for borrowing and lending to climb to the highest level in almost four years.
  • SF Fed: a large share of securities firms' assets are reverse repurchase transactions with other market participants. The primary liquidity risk facing securities firms is the risk that sources of funding will become unavailable, thereby forcing a firm to wind down its operations and liquidate asset portfolio. To mitigate this risk, securities firms hold liquid securities and attempt to diversify their funding sources.
  • March 20: Fed expands collateral for $200bn 'Treasury Swap' facility (TSLF) to include bundled mortgage debt (i.e. AAA RMBS) and securities linked to commercial real- estate loans i.e. AAA CMBS (originally only federal agency debt, federal agency MBS, and non-agency AAA/Aaa-rated private-label residential MBS). First $75bn auction to be held on March 27.
  • Failures, an indication of scarcity, surged to $1.795 trillion in the week ended March 5, the highest since May 2004, and up from $374 billion the prior week. They have averaged $493.4 billion a week this year, compared with $359.6 billion over the last five years and $168.8 billion back through July 1990.
  • Alea: We have seen negative repo rates before on (possibly squeezed) notes and treasuries but I don’t recall ever seeing that on T-bills. Quote 3 month T-bill repo: -0.20% also 4 year notes around -0.25%
  • NY Fed: Surges in fails sometimes result from operational disruptions, but often reflect market participants' insufficient incentive to avoid failing.
  • Krugman: The flight to safety has driven the yield on three-month Treasuries down to 0.55%. Meanwhile, three-month LIBOR — the rate at which banks lend to each other — is up slightly, so that the difference, the TED spread is back close to its earlier peaks--> companies/households not benefitting from rate cuts as their debt is priced off LIBOR
