OFR U.S. Repo Markets Data Release
The OFR U.S. Repo Markets Data Release contains daily data on rates and volumes in centrally cleared and tri-party repurchase agreement (repo) markets. These data are broken out by tenor and underlying collateral. This release is useful for understanding dynamics in repo markets and provides more detail on overall activity in these markets than any other currently available source.
Individual data series in this release may have missing values to protect the confidential information of participants in these markets.
The preliminary release is published daily at 3 p.m. as an update to the Short-term Funding Monitor. Data for centrally cleared repo markets are generally made available with a one-day lag. Data for tri-party repo are generally made available with a two-day lag. Data are not published for market holidays. Releases are not published on government holidays and data for affected days are instead published on the next day the government is open. Final series are updated on a quarterly basis, covering data for the previous quarter. These series are the product of a review of transactions in the underlying data by OFR staff. Final series will not be revised in subsequent releases.
The interest rate information published in this release is provided for informational purposes only. In particular, the rate information is not administered to International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) standards and is not intended to be referenced in contracts. Users who seek repo-based interest rates that are suitable for use as a reference rate may wish to consider one of the rates that are published by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, in cooperation with the OFR: the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR), the Broad General Collateral Rate (BGCR), the Tri-Party General Collateral Rate (TGCR), or one of the SOFR Averages or Index.
The rate information published in this release differs in a number of ways from the reference rates published by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The rate information in this release complements the reference rates, but does not allow for direct comparisons with those rates. Notably, the rates in this release include sets of underlying transactions that differ from those used for the reference rates. Also, the rates in this release are constructed as volume-weighted means, which makes them more sensitive to outliers than the volume-weighted medians used in the reference rates.
