Abstract

Darrell Duffie (1996) examines the theoretical impact of repo 'specials' on the prices of Treasury securities and concludes that, all else the same, an issue on special will carry a higher price than an otherwise identical issue. The authors examine this hypothesis and find strong evidence in support of it. They also examine whether the liquidity premium associated with 'on-the-run' issues is due to repo specialness and find evidence of a distinct effect. Finally, the authors investigate whether auction tightness and percentage awarded to dealers are related to subsequent specialness and find that both variables are generally significant.
