Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe : Money Update as at 15 October 2021

10/23/2021 | 08:14am EST

UPDATE ON RESERVE MONEY

AS AT 15TH OCTOBER 2021

RESERVE MONEY

  1. Reserve money decreased by ZW$1.94 billion to ZW$26.11 billion during the week ending 15th October 2021, compared to the previous week's position of ZW$28.05 billion.
  2. The decline in reserve money largely reflected a decrease of ZW$2.03 billion in banks' liquidity (RTGS balances) at the Central Bank, partially offset by increases of ZW$72.02 million and ZW$14.63 million in required reserves and currency issued, respectively.
  3. The fall in market liquidity was largely on the back of liquidity mopping up operations by the Bank, through issuance of non-negotiable certificates of deposits (NNCDs).
