  • During the pandemic, the NY Fed program grew substantially. Experts were expecting money to flow out of the reverse-repo facility first before deposits were impacted. This has not been the case so far.
  • Now, it appears that deposits will continue to flow out and reduce the Fed’s reserves faster than expected.
