Fed selling Treasuries maturing 11/2015 thru 12/2015

NEW YORK, Oct 29 (Reuters) - The Federal Reserve on Monday was selling on the open market U.S. Treasuries maturing November through December 2015, the New York Fed said on its website.

The Fed previously said it intended to sell $7 billion to $8 billion of short-dated Treasuries on Monday.

The sale was part of the Fed's "Operation Twist" stimulus program - a program that extends the maturity of the central bank's Treasuries holdings in a bid to lower mortgage rates and other long-term borrowing costs.
