U.S. & Eurozone Corporates: where is the FED?

As the pandemic brought large swathes of the global economy to a standstill, both the U.S. Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank started loading their respective policy bazookas. As soon as 18 March, the ECB announced its EUR750bn Pandemic Emergency Purchase Programme (PEPP), which included corporate credit and non-financial commercial paper in its eligible asset universe.
