  • Recognizes there is a risk that QT may need to end earlier than expected
  • Should be able to reduce settlements balances to the $20-60 billion range sometime in 2025
  • Any decision to end QT early would be linked to factors such as persistent upward pressure on the overnight repo rate plus widespread take-up in the overnight repo operations
  • Will be watching funding markets closely for any pressures that could be longer lasting
