The Federal Reserve Bank of New York recently released its Markets Data Dashboard which consolidates into one place much of the financial data maintained and made available. The dashboard provides important benchmarks as well as links to other data.
At a glance, the following are available:
Desk Operations: The Desk Operations section of the Markets Data Dashboard contains the results of all operations conducted by the New York Fed’s Open Market Trading Desk (the Desk). This section includes the results of any small value operations conducted as authorized by the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) for operational readiness.
Reference Rates: The New York Fed publishes two reference rates—the effective federal funds rate (EFFR) and the overnight bank funding rate (OBFR)—daily around 9:00 a.m. Those rates reflect the previous business day’s trading. One of these rates, the EFFR, is used by the FOMC as its operating target for monetary policy implementation.
System Open Market Account Holdings: The System Open Market Account (SOMA) holds dollar-denominated assets acquired through past open market operations, as well as investments of foreign currency acquired through past foreign exchange operations. This section of the Markets Data Dashboard also includes a link to the weekly release of the Federal Reserve’s H.4.1–the statistical release that represents the consolidated balance sheet of the Federal Reserve and all twelve Reserve Banks.
Surveys: The New York Fed conducts surveys of market expectations in connection with each of the eight FOMC meetings per year.
