Open market operation

• Purchases and sales of government and certain other securities in the open market by the New York Federal Reserve Bank or directed by the FOMC in order to influence the volume of money and credit in the economy. Purchases inject reserves into the bank system and stimulate growth of money and credit; sales have the opposite effect. Open market operations are the Federal Reserve's most important and most flexible monetary policy tool.

• Purchase or sale of government securities by the monetary authorities to increase or decrease the domestic money supply.
