US Federal Reserve - Intervention in the Repo Market

US Repurchase Agreement (Repo) markets seem calmer, but it took 3 days and over $200bn of cash injections by the Federal Reserve to calm them.

Seems like a market dislocation / no glaring parts of the economy driving it, but given this last happened during the financial crisis and led to the credit crunch, I feel somewhat worried. Especially if repo markets continue needing liquidity injections.

Evarvest community - I’d love to know how you are interpreting this!
