    Abstract

    Despite the enormous popularity of the market for repurchase agreements, the behavior of interest rates on "repo" transactions is not well understood. An analysis of new data for 1992-95 reveals that repo rates on recently issued Treasury notes rise and fall in a regular pattern as the Treasury auction cycle progresses.
