  1. what do these terms mean, especially “indirect” and “alloted” and can you tell how much the fed bought with freshly printed money?

  2. Alloted at High – it’s basically the % of those bidding the exact accepted price

    Indirects – is that group that includes foreign central banks

    Directs – domestic institutions buying for their own account

    how much the fed bought with freshly printed money? – Only Ben knows the correct answer to that ? Peter
