US markets to remain well supported by Fed liquidity – Nordea

“A slight “tapering” of the ON repo offering can’t be ruled out, while negative for risk appetite it shouldn’t really matter given its limited usage.”

“It’s also worth noting that the seasonality in the US Treasury’s crisis account (the TGA) suggests somewhat less liquidity support next week, but that tax refunds will boost liquidity substantially in February.”

In the bigger picture, while the Fed’s balance sheet won’t grow as quickly in Q1, 2020 as it did towards the end of 2019 (at an annualized pace of more than 1.2 trillion September to December), it will still grow at a solid pace –underpinning the market’s current “QE psychology”.”
