The central bank will acquire Treasury notes due from December 2014 to May 2016 today as part of its plan to purchase $600 billion more Treasuries through June and reinvest its maturing mortgage holdings. The Fed expects to reinvest $250 billion to $300 billion of proceeds from mortgage-backed debt and agency securities into Treasuries during that time.

The central bank plans to purchase between $6 and $8 billion securities today, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s website.
