Example text

The Bank effects most of its neutralization operations late in the afternoon, after all settlement transactions with the government are completed. When the Bank makes its final cash management decisions, it knows with perfect certainty the amounts that need to be transferred between government accounts at the Bank and government accounts at commercial banks to achieve complete neutralization of the public sector flows. On the other hand, when banks are given the opportunity to have a last go on the overnight market in the evening, they know with certainty what their clearing balances are.

When they are pursuing ‘dynamic’ operations, as Chick (1977, p. 89) calls them, central banks will increase (or reduce) interest rates.

No open market operation and no change whatsoever in the supply of highpowered money are required.
