Primary Dealers
The Federal Reserve Bank of New York trades U.S. government and select other securities with designated primary dealers, which include banks and securities broker-dealers. Weekly transaction, market share data and primary dealer lists are updated periodically. Much of the information is submitted voluntarily. The Bank expects primary dealers to submit accurate data, but the Bank itself does not audit the data.
Primary Dealers Historical Search
The Primary Dealer Statistics Historical Search offers new options for automated downloads of the primary dealer data including csv, sdmx-ml and json formats. Data from January 25, 1998 to present are available. In addition, three options for viewing the data are offered: table, chart and export formats for automated consumption.
