07/11/2016 Asset purchase programmes The Eurosystem will temporarily pause APP purchases (PSPP, CBPP3, CSPP and ABSPP) between 22 December and 30 December 2016, inclusive, in anticipation of lower market liquidity during this period and in order to reduce possible market distortions. Purchases will resume on 2 January 2017. Moreover, purchases during the period 29 November to 21 December will be somewhat frontloaded to take advantage of the relatively better market conditions expected during the early part of the month.
