Abstract

The aim of the article is to analyse the effectiveness of the asset purchase programs implemented by the European Central Bank during the sovereign debt crisis of some euro area countries (i.e. Securities Markets Programme i Outright Monetary Transactions). We examine how those programs translate into changes in sovereign bond yields. With the aid of the Akaike information criterion we conclude that the impact of the Outright Monetary Transactions was more durable.
