matched sale purchase transactions


A transaction in which the Federal Reserve sells a security to a dealer and agrees to buy it back at a certain date at the same price. The dealer receives interest payments on the security. This type of transaction temporarily reduces the money supply by reducing the amount of money dealers have deposited in banks.
