Items not related to monetary policy operations

In the week ending 24 June 2016 gold and gold receivables (asset item 1) remained unchanged.

The net position of the Eurosystem in foreign currency (asset items 2 and 3 minus liability items 7, 8 and 9) increased by EUR 0.9 billion to EUR 264.5 billion. This change was due to the customer and portfolio transactions carried out by Eurosystem central banks during the period under review.

During the week, the Eurosystem did not conduct any liquidity-providing transactions in connection with the standing swap arrangement that the European Central Bank has with the Federal Reserve System.

The holdings by the Eurosystem of marketable securities other than those held for monetary policy purposes (asset item 7.2) increased by EUR 0.5 billion to EUR 346.1 billion. Banknotes in circulation (liability item 1) increased by EUR 0.5 billion to EUR 1,082.2 billion.
