Here's one for you Lee. Typically the mark to market value of the Feds balance sheet holdings are irrelevant. I mean I assume the stated value of their portfolio is simply the addition of all their holdings at face value on the built in assumption they will be held till maturity. Despite the fact they were not purchased at par but at whatever the  market was on the day of purchase. Then by selling they are going to either have a gain or a loss, depending of course upon the price they paid for those already issued bonds at their then market value.

 

Or to put it another way, how is a $100.000 10 year treasury note of 2010 purchased by the Fed in 2010 accounted for today on their balance sheet.

 

If the sales ever reach the hundreds of billions of dollars I wonder how this will be accounted for by the Fed and what possible difference it could make? I know this is all off in the weeds and probably of no real systematic importance, or could it be? The longer sales go on and in increasing amounts if rates rise as I think we can assume the chances of losses on the sales increases.

Fed does not mark to market. And it is not selling any assets and never will so the Fed won't incur losses. It is merely redeeming expiring paper.

 

I continue to cover this in depth in the Wall Street Examiner Pro Trader liquidity reports, and also at Sure Money. 

 

I will have a regular response to comments post over at suremoneyinvestor.com.  That's a better place for questions like this. I can't answer them here.  Friday's post was the first response to reader comments. This will become a regular feature of the reports.

Oh, so there is actually $50bn/mo maturing now, so they can hit that number come this time next year?  I guess I am not sure the exact meaning of "redeeming".
