This means massive financial-related repos are occurring during overnight hours or weekends. A repo is short for a "repurchase agreement". It is form of short-term borrowing for dealers in government securities. The dealer sells the government securities to investors, usually on an overnight basis, and buys them back the following day. For the party selling the security (and agreeing to repurchase it in the future) it is a repo; for the party on the other end of the transaction, (buying the security and agreeing to sell in the future) it is a reverse repurchase agreement. Repos are usually used to raise short-term capital. If this happens, it means the banks are in trouble.
Background on this indicator will be provided here in the near future.
