The Swiss National Bank said on Thursday it would, from Sept. 30, provide additional data on money market operations and would also publish the volume of foreign exchange market interventions more often. "Regarding money market operations, the SNB will now publish information on the conditions and volume of individual monetary policy-related transactions at the end of each month for the previous month," the bank said. "With respect to foreign exchange market operations, the volume of which has hitherto been communicated annually in the accountability report, the volume of interventions will now be disclosed at the end of each quarter for the previous quarter," it added.
With the so-called Big Four central banks—the U.S. Federal Reserve, the European Central Bank, the (8301) and the Bank of England —taking their balance sheet to a cumulative 53% of gross domestic product, per (MS) estimates, the Swiss central bank’s active intervention in currency markets and outright purchases of equities don’t look as exotic as they used to. “Against the backdrop of an improving market landscape (declining financial stress, improving liquidity conditions), the currency has remained relatively resilient,” the analysts say.
The Swiss National Bank will adjust the special rate on its liquidity-shortage financing facility and conduct additional open market repo operations as needed to provide money market liquidity, it said. "As before, the special rate will be calculated as the SNB policy rate plus a surcharge of 50 basis points," the central bank said on Monday.
