What financing data reveal about dealer leverage

Michael Fleming () and Tobias Adrian ()

Current Issues in Economics and Finance, 2005, issue mar

Abstract: The Federal Reserve collects data on the financing activities of the primary government securities dealers. Some market analysts argue that the data show a considerable rise in dealer leverage in recent years. However, a close reading of the data suggests that dealer borrowing involving fixed-income securities has grown only modestly. Moreover, the increase that has occurred is not clearly associated with greater risk taking.
