“In consultation with the Fed, the BoE, the BoJ, the ECB, and the SNB have decided to reduce the frequency of their 7-day operations from daily to once per week.”

This decision was made in light of recent US Dollar liquidity-providing operations’ low demand and improved US Dollar funding conditions.

“These central banks stand ready to adjust the provision of US dollar liquidity as market conditions warrant.”
