Fed funds traded from 0.05 percent to 0.32 percent on Dec. 24, according to data posted on the Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s website. The fed effective, or a volume-weighted average of rates on trades arranged by major brokers, was 0.13 percent.

The Fed will conduct a test of an overnight fixed-rate reverse-repo facility. The temporary open-market operations will use Treasuries as collateral. The fixed-rate on the reverse repos, for transactions that total at or below the $300 billion aggregate limit, will be at a 0.05 percent today.
