    Al administrar reservas internacionales los bancos centrales generalmente se enfrentan al problema de determinar su nivel óptimo o adecuado. En este documento se presenta una revisión crítica de algunas metodologías para el cálculo del saldo óptimo de reservas, así como un conjunto de indicadores de liquidez internacional cuya combinación arroja luces sobre el nivel adecuado de reservas internacionales de acuerdo con un método reciente propuesto por el Fondo Monetario Internacional (FMI). A través de diferentes ejercicios, se ilustra la alta sensibilidad de los resultados de los modelos sobre el nivel óptimo" de reservas ante variaciones factibles de sus parámetros. Adicionalmente estos modelos suponen un nivel dado de pasivos externos de corto plazo del país. Estos factores limitan de forma significativa la utilidad práctica de estos modelos en la administración de las reservas internacionales. "
