Nov 4 (Reuters) - The New York Federal Reserve on Monday accepted all $77.58 billion in bids from primary dealers at a repurchase agreement (repo) operation, a move intended to help maintain the federal funds rate within the target range.
Monday’s amount was slightly higher than the $73.13 billion in repos awarded on Friday.
