Items not related to monetary policy operations

In the week ending 7 December 2012 the increase of EUR 2 million in gold and gold receivables (asset item 1) reflected the purchase of gold by Eurosystem central banks.

The net position of the Eurosystem in foreign currency (asset items 2 and 3 minus liability items 7, 8 and 9) remained unchanged at EUR 229 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 0.2 billion to EUR 308.9 billion. Banknotes in circulation (liability item 1) increased by EUR 6.1 billion to EUR 895.8 billion. Liabilities to general government (liability item 5.1) decreased by EUR 10.5 billion to EUR 122.7 billion.

The Eurosystem’s net lending to credit institutions (asset item 5 minus liability items 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 2.5 and 4) decreased by EUR 2.7 billion to EUR 666.9 billion. On Wednesday, 5 December 2012, a main refinancing operation of EUR 74.6 billion matured and a new one of EUR 70.8 billion was settled. On the same day, fixed-term deposits in an amount of EUR 208.5 billion matured and new deposits were collected in the same amount, with a maturity of one week.

Recourse to the marginal lending facility (asset item 5.5) was EUR 0.6 billion (compared with EUR 1.9 billion in the previous week), while recourse to the deposit facility (liability item 2.2) was EUR 235.3 billion (compared with EUR 237.8 billion in the preceding week).

The holdings by the Eurosystem of securities held for monetary policy purposes (asset item 7.1) remained unchanged at EUR 277.1 billion. Therefore, in the week ending 7 December 2012, the value of accumulated purchases under the Securities Markets Programme amounted to EUR 208.5 billion, while the value of the portfolios held under the first and second covered bond purchase programmes totalled EUR 52.1 billion and EUR 16.4 billion respectively. All three portfolios are accounted for on a held-to-maturity basis.
