Watch via SIFMA On Demand

The emergence of the global pandemic COVID-19 in the first quarter of 2020 caused severe economic and capital markets shocks. In response to these extraordinary events, the Federal Reserve took a wide range of actions to support the flow of credit to U.S. households and businesses.

As part of this suite of actions, the Federal Open Market Committee directed the New York Fed to purchase Treasury and agency mortgage-backed securities in the amounts needed to support the smooth functioning of these markets, which play a central role in the U.S. financial system.
