Fed assets rose by $32.2B in the week ending Jun 2. This amount was comprised almost entirely of Treasury coupon purchases, with no net additions to the MBS or TIPS portfolios.
- That was the 2nd largest weekly increase in Tsy holdings since the Fed began ramping up asset purchases in March 2020 (the week ending Apr 21 saw $34B in purchases). Notably it occurred in a holiday-shortened week (Memorial Day).
