U.S. Treasury Seeks Large Position Reports on 2019 Notes

Feb. 27 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Treasury Department today asked for information about positions in 1.25 percent notes of January 2019, with a threshold of $2 billion as of the close of business on Feb. 21.

“Entities with reportable positions in this note equal to or exceeding the $2 billion threshold must report these positions to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York,” the Treasury said in a press release.

Reports are due by March 2 and must include the required position and administration information, the Treasury said. Central banks and the Federal Reserve are exempt from these requests.

The large position reporting program was established in 1996 to guard against market manipulation. In December 2010, the Treasury announced a test of the program and called for reports from investors holding $2 billion or more of 3/4-percent Treasury notes maturing on Sept. 15, 2013.
