Nov 13 (Reuters) - The New York Federal Reserve on Wednesday accepted all $77.09 billion in bids from primary dealers at an overnight repurchase agreement (repo) operation, a move intended to help maintain the federal funds rate within its target range.
Wednesday’s amount was higher than the $76.94 billion in repos awarded on Tuesday.
