ECB Says Didn’t Settle Any Bond Purchases for 11th Week

May 28, 2012

The European Central Bank said it didn’t buy any government bond purchases for an 11th straight week.

The Frankfurt-based ECB said it will take seven-day term deposits tomorrow to absorb the 212 billion euros ($266 billion) of liquidity created since the program started in May 2010, a practice it employs to ensure the purchases don’t fuel inflation. The ECB halted the bond-buying program after its two three-year loans to banks totaling more than 1 trillion euros helped debt markets to rally.
