Reporting Dealer

A firm that must report its transactions and positions in Treasury securities to the Federal Reserve. A reporting dealer must make these reports because it helps the Federal Reserve make decisions with regard to the money supply. That is, reporting dealers help the Fed decide whether to sell or buy Treasury securities to affect interest rates and, therefore, the money in circulation. See also: Primary dealer.
