Fed Funds Open at 0.15%, Within Target Range, According to ICAP

February 08, 2013

Fed funds, the U.S. overnight inter- bank lending rate, opened at 0.15 percent, within the Federal Reserve’s target of zero to 0.25 percent.

Fed funds closed at 0.11 percent yesterday after trading from 0.1 percent to 0.15 percent and averaging 0.13 percent, ICAP Plc, the world’s largest inter-dealer broker, said in an e- mailed statement.

The central bank will acquire $1 billion to $1.5 billion of Treasury Inflation Protected Securities maturing from April 2017 to February 2042. The purchases are part of the Fed’s latest round of quantitative easing, which is aimed at keeping long term rates low.
