on the agency debt and agency mortgage-backed securities, or MBS, it holds to reinvest in agency MBS.

The New York Fed said on its website the Fed sold no mortgage securities guaranteed by Fannie Mae (OB:),

Freddie Mac (OB:) or the Government National Mortgage Association, or Ginnie Mae, in the latest week. It sold $8 billion the prior week.
