Question and answer
What are the factors that would influence the Federal Reserve in adjusting the discount rate?
The largest autonomous factor is Federal Reserve notes. [ By conducting open market operations, imposing reserve requirements, permitting depository institutions to hold contractual clearing balances, and extending credit through its discount window facility, the Federal Reserve exercises considerable control over the demand for and supply of Federal Reserve balances and the federal funds rate.
Through its control of the federal funds rate, the Federal Reserve is able to foster financial and monetary conditions consistent with its monetary policy objectives. I hope this helps! Thanks and have a great day! [smile] ]
