NEW YORK, July 10 (Reuters) - Most commercial mortgage-backed securities eligible under published guidelines for the Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility will also meet other Federal Reserve criteria, the Fed told investors on Friday, according one investor and a dealer.
Uncertainty over which CMBS could still be rejected from the TALF program next week has created confusion and capped gains in the $700 billion market, which the Fed wants to help unlock with the lending program.
The assurance by the Fed “will help, but we expect the market will be cautious,” Citigroup analysts said in a research note obtained by Reuters.
