13 November 2012 - Consolidated financial statement of the Eurosystem as at 9 November 2012

Items not related to monetary policy operations

In the week ending 9 November 2012 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) decreased by EUR 0.8 billion to EUR 228.9 billion on account of customer and portfolio transactions and US dollar liquidity-providing operations (see below).

The liquidity-providing transactions were conducted by the Eurosystem in connection with the temporary reciprocal currency arrangement (swap line) 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) decreased by EUR 0.7 billion to EUR 311.3 billion. Banknotes in circulation (liability item 1) decreased by EUR 2.9 billion to EUR 890.3 billion. Liabilities to general government (liability item 5.1) decreased by EUR 9.8 billion to EUR 86.8 billion.

Items related to monetary policy operations

The Eurosystem’s net lending to credit institutions (asset item 5 minus liability items 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 2.5 and 4) increased by EUR 8.7 billion to EUR 667.9 billion. On Wednesday, 7 November 2012, a main refinancing operation of EUR 83.7 billion matured and a new one of EUR 79.5 billion was settled. On the same day, fixed-term deposits in an amount of EUR 209.5 billion matured and new deposits were collected in the amount of EUR 208.5 billion, with a maturity of one week.

Recourse to the marginal lending facility (asset item 5.5) was EUR 0.9 billion (compared with EUR 0.5 billion in the previous week), while recourse to the deposit facility (liability item 2.2) was EUR 248.5 billion (compared with EUR 261.4 billion in the preceding week).

The holdings by the Eurosystem of securities held for monetary policy purposes (asset item 7.1) decreased by EUR 0.1 billion to EUR 278.2 billion. This decrease was due to the redemption of securities under the first covered bond purchase programme. Therefore, in the week ending 9 November 2012, the value of accumulated purchases under the Securities Markets Programme amounted to EUR 208.5 billion, while the values of the portfolios held under the first and second covered bond purchase programmes totalled EUR 53.2 billion and EUR 16.4 billion respectively. All three portfolios are accounted for on a held-to-maturity basis.

Current accounts of euro area credit institutions

As a result of all transactions, the current account position of credit institutions with the Eurosystem (liability item 2.1) increased by EUR 18.6 billion to EUR 534 billion.
