Consolidated Financial Statement Of The Eurosystem As At 15 August 2008

Items not related to monetary policy operations

(lifePR) (Frankfurt am Main, ) In the week ending 15 August 2008, the decrease of EUR 24 million in gold and gold receivables (asset item 1) reflected the sale of gold by one Eurosystem central bank (consistent with the Central Bank Gold Agreement that came into effect on 27 September 2004) and a net sale of gold coin by another Eurosystem central bank.

The net position of the Eurosystem in foreign currency (asset items 2 and 3 minus liability items 7, 8 and 9) increased by EUR 4.3 billion to EUR 170 billion on account of customer and portfolio transactions and US dollar liquidity-providing operations. On Thursday, 14 August 2008, a US dollar liquidity-providing operation of USD 25 billion matured and a new operation of USD 20 billion was settled, with a maturity of 28 days. On the same day, a further US dollar liquidity-providing operation of USD 10 billion was settled, with a maturity of 84 days. These operations were conducted by the Eurosystem in connection with the temporary reciprocal currency arrangement (swap line) between the ECB and the Federal Reserve System.

The holdings by the Eurosystem of marketable securities of euro area residents denominated in euro (asset item 7) fell by EUR 0.6 billion to EUR 110 billion. Banknotes in circulation (liability item 1) decreased by EUR 0.2 billion to EUR 690.2 billion. Liabilities to general government (liability item 5.1) decreased by EUR 6 billion to EUR 50.8 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 16.1 billion to EUR 476 billion. On Wednesday, 13 August 2008, a main refinancing operation of EUR 160 billion matured and a new one of EUR 176 billion was settled. On Thursday, 14 August 2008, a supplementary longer-term refinancing operation of EUR 50 billion matured and a new one of EUR 50 billion was settled. Recourse to the marginal lending facility (asset item 5.5) was EUR 0.1 billion (compared with virtually nil in the previous week), while recourse to the deposit facility (liability item 2.2) was virtually nil (compared with EUR 0.1 billion in the preceding week).

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 21.8 billion to EUR 232.8 billion.
