Background Information
The Fed engages in open-market operations to influence the amount of reserves held by commercial banks, which, in turn, influences the federal funds rate, which is the rate banks charge each other for loans of reserves to meet their minimum reserve requirements. Banks are required to hold between 3 and 10 percent of their demand deposits as reserves, whether as cash in their vaults or as noninterest-bearing deposits with the Fed. They may also hold additional or excess reserves for clearing overnight checks or other purposes.
