Fed funds rate trades at 5 basis points above target range
The fed funds rate traded on Tuesday 5 basis points above the upper bound of its target range between 2.00% to 2.25%, according to Federal Reserve data released Wednesday morning. The recent climb in overnight repurchasing rates, used by hedge funds and other leveraged investors to finance their trading operations, has resulted in a knock-on increase in the fed funds rate. Since both are short-term sources of funding, a rise in the overnight repurchasing rate means that borrowers in fed funds have to pay up to attract investors. The fed funds rate pushing above its target range underlines analysts' concerns that the U.S. central bank is having trouble keeping its benchmark interest rate at its desired levels. The Fed launched $75 billion of overnight repos on Wednesday morning, in order to inject liquidity bank into the system and to bring the fed funds rate in line within its preferred range. This is the Fed's second repo operation this week.

Fed carries out repo operation for second straight day
The New York Fed held an overnight repurchasing operation for the second time this week on Wednesday morning. The U.S. central bank carried out the full $75 billion of repos, temporarily buying securities from Wall Street dealers to inject liquidity into the system. Earlier this week, a surge in the repurchasing rate, used by hedge funds and banks to fund their trading operations, pushed the fed funds rate close to the top of its targeted range. The incident stirred worries that the central bank is at risk of losing its grip over its benchmark interest rate.
