U.S. Fed’s balance sheet shrank in latest week

NEW YORK, March 4 (BestGrowthStock) – The U.S. Federal Reserve’s
balance sheet shrank slightly in the latest week due to a
decline in holdings of mortgage-related securities, Fed data
released on Thursday showed.

The Fed’s balance sheet liabilities — a broad gauge of its
lending to the financial system — slipped to $2.262 trillion
on Wednesday from $2.269 trillion last week but was still not
far below its record of $2.274 trillion set on Jan. 13.
