  6. Repurchase Agreement (Repo): form of short-term borrowing for dealers in government securities. In the case of a repo, the dealer sells government securities to investors, usually on an overnight basis, and buys them back the following day.Repo markets are generally used by banks and financial institutions to fund short term/ overnight liabilities using assets such as U.S. Treasuries, securities or other intangible property as collateral. It is where financial institutions go when they need short term cash, in exchange for some collateral, like Treasuries or mortgage securities, for a short-term loan. Rather than having to sell off assets to pay or fund liabilities, institutions can use these overnight markets to access liquidity. The Federal Reserve has provided liquidity through injections of funds ($200B) into the Repo markets in order to calm them.
