NEW YORK, May 14 (Reuters) - The New York Federal Reserve on Thursday said it bought $2.98 billion of Treasuries maturing between October 2010 and February 2011.
Dealers submitted $27.09 billion for consideration in the operation.
The purchase was part of its emergency effort to keep long-term interest rates low. The Fed said in March it would buy up to $300 billion in U.S. government bonds over six months.
