Fed Scoops Up November 20-Year Bond, Takes Out Chunk of Risk

by confoundedinterest17

The Federal Reserve bought $3.6 billion of off-the-run 20-year bonds in Tuesday’s operation (7-20 year), the first time the November issue was eligible for purchase. In the last two 7-20-year Treasury operations the Fed purchased $5.5 billion more in 10-year Treasury equivalents than in the previous two.

The result? The yield on the 20 year Treasury rose higher than any other Treasury.
