Analysis of Recent Monetary Operations and Financial Market Developments04/04/2014Analysis of Recent Monetary Operations and Financial Market Developments
In this article we review 2013 and early 2014, examining the main changes to the ECB’s operational framework and the evolution of Eurosystem lending, particularly the Early Repayment Operations (EROs) relating to the two 3-year Longer Term Refinancing Operations (LTROs). The article studies the use of the ECB’s standing facilities, while it also reports on the improvements in money markets over the review period. Finally, we also examine the Irish sovereign’s on-going return to debt markets before briefly analysing changes in TARGET2 balances over 2013.
Central Bank Communications A Comparative Study04/04/2014Central Bank Communications A Comparative Study

We then survey the communication practices of central banks in ten advanced economies, comparing and contrasting their frameworks across press conferences and statements, the publication of minutes and transcripts, the horizon and scope of the forecasts that they publish and the use of forward guidance in its various forms.
