Bernanke Says Treasury, MBS Markets Not Disrupted by QE

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke said the central bank’s asset purchases haven’t disrupted the markets for Treasuries or mortgage-backed securities.

The Fed is “heavily engaged” in monitoring market functioning and “to this point, we haven’t seen anything significant,” Bernanke said in Washington today in response to questions from members of the House Financial Services Committee.
