In the next day or two, I’m hoping to produce some comprehensive research (at least comparatively in the blogosphere) on the relationship between the S&P 500 and the Federal Reserve’s permanent open market operations. Historical data for these operations is available back to August 2005.
In order to do this, I needed to get the Fed’s POMO data into a much more reasonable format. The spreadsheet below is the result of my work. You can download the spreadsheet here.
