Measures to Improve the Efficiency of the Operational Framework for Monetary Policy
This study shows that strong interest rate expectations can have a massive short-term impact on counterparties' bidding behavior if certain conditions for monetary policy operations are present. This increases the probability of an undesirable reaction of potentially more volatile short-term money market rates. Therefore, during the first quarter of 2004 the Eurosystem took steps to counter such potential negative repercussions on signaling the monetary policy stance. The modifications are to make an important contribution toward increasing the efficiency of the operational framework for monetary policy. In another area — the risk control framework for eligible assets — the Eurosystem implemented measures to increase the precision and transparency of the valuation of these assets and adopted a more precise definition of the criteria for certain credit standards.
