MBS RECAP: 1/4/2012


Below is the media advisory on the NY Fed’s website and the link below contains the results of the survey itself.

NEW YORK – The Federal Reserve Bank of New York has posted aggregated results from its December 2011 survey of primary dealers. The results are now available on the Primary Dealers section of the Bank’s website as part of the New York Fed’s ongoing efforts to increase transparency.

The New York Fed announced last month that it would post primary dealer survey questions on the same day they are sent to the dealers and that aggregated results would follow. Going forward, these results will be posted on a regular basis on the Bank’s website one day after minutes of FOMC meetings are made public.

About the Primary Dealer Surveys:
In advance of each FOMC meeting, a survey prepared by the New York Fed’s Markets Group is sent to the Bank’s primary dealers. The survey questions are based only on topics widely discussed in public, including in FOMC statements, meeting minutes and remarks by FOMC members. FOMC members are not consulted in the formulation of survey questions.
